The Reel Stories winter mini-festival will be returning downtown February 3 to 5, 2017 where we present the most current in documentary and fact-based films. During the summer months we offer free outdoor screenings on Barrie’s waterfront. From October 13 to 22, 2017 we will be hosting our 20th annual ten-day festival at venues throughout the City of Barrie. This autumn film festival includes over 40 screenings, a Short Film Competition, guest Q&As and receptions

We were honoured to have Alethea Arnaquq-Baril, Director for Angry Inuk, and Aaju Peter attend last year's BFF19 Opening night film for a Q&A

Alethea Arnaquq-Baril is the recipient of the Meritorious Service Cross in recognition of her outstanding work as an activist and filmmaker.

We are very pleased for her, Angry Inuk is a powerful, respectful and dignified documentary responding to those who oppose seal hunting, and the dramatic impact that it has had on the lives of Inuit people.

Thank you to Jennifer Klementti for the portraits of Alethea and Aaju
