Call for Submissions: Reelworld Film Festival

The Reelworld Film Festival showcases a wide variety of genres in narrative and documentary features, narrative and documentary shorts, music videos, animation, episodic content for web and television, and VR/360 works. From dramatic storytelling, to hard-hitting documentaries, to witty comedies, to thoughtful abstractions, Reelworld 2021 selections will reflect the strong and authentic voice of Canadians identifying as Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour.

We focus on BIPOC talent as well as BIPOC content. We showcase and support BIPOC producers, directors, screenwriters, actors and all on and off screen talent. We connect with agents, casting directors, broadcasters and distributors, invite them to the festival, and help them find new BIPOC talent. The Reelworld Film Festival features 100% BIPOC talent from Canada, and has become the country’s largest socially impactful film festival, reaching a diverse audience of over 350,000 engaged individuals to-date.

Regular deadline: May 21, 2021 Late deadline: June 21, 2021
