10th ReelWorld Film Festival, April 7 - 11, 2010

The ReelWorld Film Festival is a yearly celebration of movies by diverse talents, both in front of and behind the camera. Toronto is one of the most diverse cities in the world, and the festival reflects that in the programming. ReelWorld screens features, shorts, documentaries, animation, music videos from the Aboriginal, Asian, Black, Latino, Middle Eastern, South Asian and other communities.

The festival was founded by Tonya Lee Williams, who has Toronto roots and played Dr. Olivia Winters on the television show The Young and the Restless.

The festival also features an industry series that includes panels on topics such as Developing a sellable script; Distribution: What you need to know; Being a Professional Actor; Getting from Here to There: Filmmakers share their secrets; Case Study: feature film Off World; and 'Face 2 Face' sessions for emerging filmmakers to meet one-on-one with industry professionals.

The screenings include the Opening Night gala screening of the poetic Off World by Toronto-based Mateo Guez, and the Toronto premiere screening of Warren Sonoda's exciting mixed martial arts film Unrivaled. Lenin M. Sivam's 1999 takes a hard look at the immigrant experience through the eyes of several young characters.

The 10th Annual Reelworld Film Festival will take place in Toronto from April 7-11 with regular screenings at the Canada Square Theatre and gala screenings at the Scotiabank Theatre. Tickets and passes are currently on sale; to purchase them, go online to, email, or call 416-599-7933.
