Opening Night film, Mia and the White Lion
The 21st Reel 2 Real Film Festival for Youth
April 7-13, 2019
Through public screenings, hands-on workshops, interactive panel discussions and public forums, R2R Festival involves youth in actively viewing and dicussing professionally made films, exposing them to new ideas and cultural perspectives.
Fairchild Radio and Reel 2 Real International Film Festival for Youth will be presenting the Canadian Premiere of a film from China, A First Farewell. In Uygur and Mandarin, this cinematic gem is a delicate coming of age portrait about the end of childhood. It is a formidable first feature, by Lina Wang, who grew up in the Uighur region in Xinjiang.
