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.
