Awards & Jury
This year, Reel to Real Online is honoured to have three different juries participate in providing well deserved recognition to filmmakers showcased at our program.
Our festival juries are made of our Youth Jury program: The Senior Jury and The Junior Jury. The Junior and Senior Juries each give awards for Most Innovative Short Film and Most Inspirational Short Film, and the Junior Jury also presents the National Film Board of Canada Award for Best Animated Short. The Senior Jury presents the Edith Lando Peace Prize for the film that best utilizes the power of cinema to further the goal of social justice and peace.
