  • Wandering Reel Film Festival

    October 28th, 2018 to October 28th, 2018

    Wandering Reel is a traveling short film festival with a focus on bringing meaningful films to communities with limited or no access to compassionate, thought-provoking cinema. We strive to engage our audiences in deeper conversation about the role of cinema, and how films can relate to community, conscious living, and contribute to making the world a stronger and more unified place. This year, curator Michael Harrington will bring a program he calls “Our Basic Assumptions”, seven short films that challenge stereotypes around poverty, race, integrity, sexuality, gender, age and more.
