MISSION & OBJECTIVE

The Winnipeg Real to Reel Film Festival seeks to bring you the best in the latest Feature Films, Shorts and TV/Webisodes that will encourage, challenge and inspire us to pursue positive values and a greater understanding of the human journey.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

The Winnipeg Real to Reel Film Festival connects filmmakers with audiences through films that encourage, challenge and inspire us to positive values and a greater understanding of the human journey.

Located in friendly Winnipeg, Manitoba in the heart of Canada, the WR2R Festival is graciously hosted by the North Kildonan MB Church and features films from a variety of perspectives that provide insight, offer hope, and challenge our thinking and attitudes. With multiple screening areas under one roof, WR2R offers filmmakers and audiences an exciting opportunity to reflect on and discuss the impact of movies.

WR2R incorporates feature film, shorts, documentaries, children's programs and TV/Webisodes that convey life-affirming themes to provide audiences with a line up that will entertain, inform and enlighten.

It would be our pleasure to welcome you to Winnipeg and to the WR2R Film Festival. We look forward to your submission and wish you the best of success with your project.
