Please join us at the 5th Annual ReelHeART International Film Festival (RHIFF)June 22-27, 2009. We’ve got so many great films this year and a NEW category of competition. We have introduced an award for “Best Cinematography“. The award will be coming from famed photo journalist from Paris-Match and Life Magazine I.C. Rapoport. You can read about him on the ReelHeART website or click here to learn more.Â What’s great is the audience votes always counts on all awards. Including this one!
What else is happening before we launchÂ ReelHEART…?
ReelHeART is exciting to be involved in this yearâ€™s Big on Bloor Festival, Saturday June 20th from 1PM-9PM. Come meet Representatives and Filmmakers from ReelHeART at two locations:
1. 860 Bloor Street West at Hits and Misses Record Store (near Ossington)
2. On Bloor near Montrose Street
Local Filmmakers will be stopping by all throughout the day with giveaways and free passes to their films. Theyâ€™re coming out to show their community that yes, Toronto Filmmakers can and do make great films! Come meet them and a few of our early arrivals from around the world!
In these last 5 years, weâ€™ve grown tremendously as a film festival, from a 3-day event to 6 days. Weâ€™ve become known as the â€œFilmmakersâ€™ Film Festivalâ€ we think in part due to our organization, communication and support we give to the filmmaking community all over the world, all year long. Weâ€™ve created a brand that has â€˜name recognitionâ€™, affectionately known in Toronto as the â€œcool film festivalâ€. The parties are always sold out and the films are always talked about from one screening to the next. Get your tickets online now before they’re all sold out.
The goal of ReelHeART is to bring everyone together in one place regardless of who they are. Quite unlike other fests in the city, we donâ€™t separate VIPs from â€˜regular folkâ€™. Industry Pros, Sponsors, Contest Winners, Filmmakers, Writers, Actors and Audiences all interact together.
Films and Screenplays: We bring you the challenging, the controversial, the inspiring and the downright funny from some of the best indie minds in screenwriting and filmmaking today.
And tickets are reasonable priced at $8 and $10 dollars. Seniors get in FREE!
In a city of 75 festivals, we want to meet the people of TorontoÂ whoâ€™ve been showing their support for the Real ART of Filmmaking. Come on out to Big on Bloor and Show us your ReelHeART!
Advance Tickets are on sale online at www.reelheart.com
