40% of Filmmakers Slated to Appear at ReelHeART 2009!

ReelHeART PosterOnly 1 Week to the Launch of ReelHEART 2009!

Toronto, Canada (RPRN) 6/15/2009--In these last 5 years, ReelHeART International Film Festival (RHIFF) has grown tremendously as a film festival. From a 3-day event to 6 days, we’ve become known as the “Filmmakers’ Film Festival” we think in part due to our organization, communication and support we give to the filmmaking community all over the world, all year long. We’ve created a brand that has ‘name recognition’, affectionately known in Toronto as the “cool film festival”…
The parties are always sold out and the films are always talked about from one screening to the next. One year to the next. Get your tickets online now before they’re all sold out.

Over 129 Films submitted from over 30 countries this is our biggest year yet!

We can confirm that 40% of our films will be represented by visiting filmmakers from as far away as Switzerland, London and Northern Ireland to name a few.

Come and meet them and get involved in what are sure to be rousing Q&A’s from some of the best minds in independent filmmaking today. Be sure to check out our website and note the “Filmmaker in Attendance” note on their films.

“In this economy, the fact that filmmakers are making their way to Toronto, confirms that ReelHeART is a “competitive and ‘recognized’ festival” worthwhile of any filmmakers’ submission strategy from Hollywood, right down to a budding filmmaker throwing their films up on YouTube.

We couldn’t be more delighted with the enthusiasm and support these filmmakers have shown us during this difficult financial time.”, says, ReelHeART Director Shannonn Kelly.

She goes on to say, “We’re going to roll out the red carpet for our incredible visiting filmmakers as we’ve done every year since we started. But this season, in particular, just makes it that more significant for both the filmmaker and us as a film festival.”.

In a city of 75 festivals, we want to meet the people of Toronto who’ve been showing their support for the Real ART of Filmmaking. Come on out and Show us your ReelHeART!

Advance Tickets are on sale online at www.reelheart.com
