Pamela Powell previews the 16th Reelworld Film Festival on Reel Honest Reviews


Toronto is known for TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival), but it also hosts one of the most socially important film festivals in North America.  Reelworld Film Festival  focuses on “harnessing the power of film as a force for social good.”   Now in its 16th year, the festival takes place at the Harbourfront Centre from Wednesday, October 12 through Sunday, October 16 showcasing full-length feature films, visual reality (VR) presentations and interaction, and gaming options.  It is the first year to solely address social issues and will continue to do so in future years.  And this festival promises to be no ordinary one.  Each film will be followed by the opportunity to sit down with leaders and various organizations to discuss and implement the next step for a positive change.  Watching, learning, and making a direct difference puts this festival into a category all its own.
