R2R Online Festival 2022

R2R 2022 is coming back online from April 3-13, 2022! This year’s R2R Festival will take place at the Roundhouse and Vancity Theatre in Vancouver, and we are thrilled to also bring you the best films for all ages from around the world online at home and in classrooms across British Columbia!

Our small and dedicated team has been working tirelessly to find the best of the best films for children and their families from around the globe. R2R Online presents 10 feature films and 63 shorts, from over 29 countries and Indigenous nations. There’s something for everyone!

The entire program will be presented on Eventive, a world class platform that is easy to navigate. The most cost effective way to enjoy the Festival is to purchase a pass. You will receive an ‘online ticket’ to redeem for each feature film or short film program you want to watch. You will be able to view the short films as many times you desire; however, once you unlock a feature film with your festival pass, you only have 48 hours to watch it. 

  • Access for a household is $40
  • Early Bird access for a single class is $75 (price includes educational materials) – until March 25, 2022 / $90 starting March 26

A big thank you to our funders, sponsors, and supporters who make it possible to keep our prices affordable for youth and families.

The Reel to Real Society is based in the city of Vancouver, located on the unceded xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and Tsleil-Waututh territories. We are devoting ourselves to justice, in recognition of the role of the arts as a vehicle for social change. You can learn more at native-land.ca.

All Festival programs (feature films, short film programs, filmmaker Q&As) will be available to view online from April 3 to 13, 2022. 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
