REELWORLD FILM FESTIVAL – Oct 14th-19th – Celebrating 20 Years of Empowering Racially Diverse Canadian Talent

Quote from Executive Director and Reelworld Founder, Tonya Williams

Back in 2000, when I started the festival, no one in the industry was talking about racial diversity on our screens. In fact, there were those who told me we had no problems in Canada in this regard. The systemic racism was so deep that people appeared deaf and blind to the issues. We’ve really come a long way when I see everyone is now making this a top priority and they have finally come to recognize the inequities that have been present in our industry since its inception in 1896.
