How to R2R Online

Welcome to Reel 2 Real! Everything you need to know about how to access R2R’s Online Festival can be found here. 


All Festival programs (feature films, short film programs, filmmaker Q&As) will be available to view online from April 14 to 23, 2021. Our screening platform is Eventive; a secure and user friendly, online screening room used by over 150 festivals worldwide. The entire program will be available throughout British Columbia.

All programs will be available to view on demand for the duration of the Festival. Feature films will be available to view for 48 hours after you click “play.” Please be mindful of when you start to view a film to ensure you have adequate time to complete your viewing within the available 48 hour window.

We’ll be hosting several pre-recorded Q&As with filmmakers and actors. This is your chance to hear directly from the talent behind the camera. Q&As will appear after the film

R2R’s All Access Pass gives one household access to the entire program, from one device. Each pass allows all short film programs to be viewed as many times as you want. Feature films may be viewed once only (with a viewing period of 48 hours once unlocked). Feature films and short Film programs will be available starting midnight on April 13. As a pass holder you are welcome to watch whenever you’d like—day or night, weekday or weekend—through the end of the Festival (April 24).


Programs can be viewed on your web browser via Eventive, which can be cast to your TV using and on AppleTV or Roku. A comprehensive guide can be found at this link.
