About the Reel Awareness Film Festival

Worldwide, talented filmmakers brave threats and danger to capture moving stories about human rights abuse, resistance and struggle.

Their films have the power to examine the complexity of the human condition. These are stories that simply have to be told – these are the stories told at the Reel Awareness Film Festival.

The Team Behind the Reel Awareness Festival

Reel Awareness is produced by the Amnesty International Toronto Film Team. The Film Team is an enthusiastic group of activists and film lovers who work together to raise public awareness about human rights issues around the globe. The team’s mission is to inform, educate and engage audiences about human rights issues through film.
