Please check back for 2017 Information.
Real to Reel is a collaboration between filmmakers and storytellers. Filmmaking teams have only 5 days to write, shoot, edit—and screen a film based on stories from eight local storytellers. The kicker: none of the teams had heard the stories before they were presented.

Want to see your story made into a short film? Pitch us your story or idea. Keep in mind that not all stories can be turned into film easily. The best candidates will have a lot of action, a setting that can be filmed, characters that can be cast, drama, tension, and a strong narrative arc. If most of the story happens through your internal thoughts, it will be hard to film. If it takes place on a roller coaster, it will be hard to film. Get it? And you may pitch a story you’ve performed before.
