Real to Reel Film Festival

How it works

The Real to Reel Film Festival selection committee, which includes several BFCA (Broadcast Film Critics Association) members, has spent nearly a year screening films from around the world, whittling down the submissions and we couldn't be more thrilled with the lineup! For 21 years the mission of the Real to Reel International Film Festival has been to offer a forum for independent filmmakers from around the world to showcase their talents and expose the works of these artists to our region. We're excited, in this unusual year, to still be able to fulfil our mission! Read about the films and choose a block - or dive right in with a festival pass! Please follow us on social media for commentary, trailers, Q&A's, and 2020 awards announcements. Curious to learn more about a film you just watched? Many of our filmmakers have provided a pre-taped or written Q&A. Find them on our YouTube channel or on www.realtoreelfest.com.

Frequently asked questions

How can I make a donation to the Real to Reel Film Fest?
You can either make a 10% donation at checkout, or you can donate directly to the Cleveland County Arts Council. You can reach out by email as well for more details info@ccartscouncil.org. 

How do I watch a film?
Tickets can be purchased individually for feature documentaries ($5 each); you can purchase film blocks (documentary shorts, narrative shorts, or Kid’s Fest) or you can buy a full access festival pass ($25). Your access to all of the titles you’ve purchased tickets for is tied to your Seed&Spark account (using the e-mail and password that you set during checkout), so make sure you’re logged in to watch! 
 
Where can I watch the film?
You can watch the film on any Internet-connected device like a computer, tablet, or phone (no downloads required!). You can also cast it to a TV. To watch on a TV, click play from the film page. Once the film player is open, hover your mouse over the bottom part of the frame to show icons that enable Screen Shot 2020-05-26 at 11.53.33 AM.png (Chromecast) or Screen Shot 2020-05-26 at 11.53.27 AM.png(Airplay).  As long as you have a Chromecast, Apple TV, or a Smart TV that supports either option, the icons should show up and the film should play on your TV.
 
How do I redeem an access or discount code?
Codes can be redeemed during checkout. Make your purchase selection and enter your code in the "Coupon code" step on the checkout page. Please note that your code may be specific to individual tickets or passes only – in that case, your code will not work if you've selected a different product type.
 
I have a free access code. Do I still need to input my credit card information?
Nope! At checkout, enter your free access code in the "Coupon code" field and click "Apply." If the code provides free access, the credit card fields will disappear. Please note: If you opt to include a 10% donation to cover festival operational fees, you will need to input credit card information.
 
How can I purchase tickets for multiple films?
Tickets must be purchased individually. Your access to all of the titles you’ve purchased tickets for is tied to your Seed&Spark account (using the e-mail and password that you set during checkout), so make sure you’re logged in to watch!  Alternatively, you can purchase a festival pass for access to all titles.
 
How do I join a virtual event?
You’ll find all available events listed in the Virtual events tab on the Festival home page. Each event will have its own instructions for RSVP or purchasing tickets listed in the description. For panels, follow the instructions on your Eventbrite ticket confirmation.
 
What is Seed&Spark?
