What
people
are
saying
“The Reel 2 Real International Youth Jury is an opportunity to see film through a new lens. You are exposed to movies you wouldn’t otherwise see: foreign, local, feature, and short. By watching with a critical eye and discussing with fellow jury members, film takes on a whole new dimension.”

Saskia Vaisey,
Grade 11

“It was different from being just a passive viewer… [T]he result is that we’ll watch movies and TV differently, based on what we’ve learned. In a world dominated by the media, it’s an important skill to be able to… look at these images more critically.”

Adriana Byrne,
Grade 11

“I [was] continually blown away by the number of talented film makers from across the globe that submitted their films to the festival… I hope that film makers keep remembering the youth as an important and influential audience in the future.”

Yasmin Kassam,
Grade 11
