The Wandering Reel Traveling Film Festival!

Saturday, March 24, 2018, 7:30 PM

Movies Inspire. Movies bring people together. Movies change lives. Or so proclaims the Wandering Reel Traveling Film Festival as it makes its return to Monterey County with a brand new collection of award winning short films designed to engage and inspire its audience. The Lab will feature Program B: In Between Us, five shorts about the unexpected bonds that bring people together. You can learn more about the films showing in these programs and more here. (Also check out a screening day before at the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur.) Tickets are per $10 suggested donation. Both screenings are followed by a Q&A discussion with festival director, filmmaker, and former Big Sur resident, Michael Harrington. * For those who can't make it, the festival will also screen the next night at The Lab, 3728 The Barnyard, Suite G-23, Carmel, Saturday, March 24th at 7:30 P.M. More about the festival after the poster! 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. WRTFF strives to engage its audience 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, the festival features 22 short films from 12 different countries around the world, divided into four different thought-provoking programs. Each of the programs has been curated to stir the viewer’s conscious and hopefully inspire action around a wide range of issues. “ Each film tells it’s own small story and together each of our programs tells a larger story,” says festival director, Michael Harrington. In addition to showing thought-provoking short movies, Wandering Reel’s mission is to engage its audiences in ways that many other film festivals cannot do. A community-centric format is designed to maximize audience participation and cultivate community building. “By exposing communities with films that are compassionate in their approach and passionate in their purpose, we hope to inspire conversation and collaboration between individuals and communities through the common experience of cinema,” remarks Mike. Thusly, after each screening, he facilitates conversations with the audience and, when available, with the filmmakers, as well.
