Reel Youth is a media empowerment project that delivers community development programming to youth and adults across Canada and internationally. Film production and distribution programs are designed to create positive change in young people's lives through technical skill building, leadership training, creative collaboration with peers and mentors, and increased connection to community resources.

Our award winning programs support participants to create media about issues they care about as they gain tangible media production and leadership skills.  Programs are as much about film making as building personal resiliency in marginalized youth to overcome challenges, be successful, and inspire those around them.

Reel Youth facilitators are artist mentors fluent in providing a fun and engaging experience for participants to explore the media arts. They have been trained to lead programs that foster personal reflection and curiosity, team building, and the creation of powerful films.

Programs are often followed by the Reel Youth Film Festival, a celebration of short films made by youth 19 years and under.  Insightful and entertaining, the touring festival collects films from around the world, for an engaging program of some of the best youth filmmaking today.

Over the past 15 years, Reel Youth has produced 2,000+ films seen by millions of people. Over 5,000 young people have participated in our programs in BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Newfoundland and Labrador, Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Vietnam, India, Morocco, USA, and Nepal.

Programs are customized to meet the specific needs of the communities we work with and we're always looking for ways to innovate and grow our impact.  If you're interested in having us visit your community, contact us!
