Reelworld Film Festival, founded in 2001 by Tonya Williams, is held annually in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The festival screens film and provides professional development for Canadian racially diverse and indigenous filmmakers and media artists.
Reelworld was founded by Tonya Williams who noted the lack of opportunities for people of color to break into the film industry. The festival's mandate states that they showcase diverse work from Canada and abroad while bringing together assorted communities. Since 2001, Reelworld has started a number of initiatives directed towards diverse artists. Reelworld celebrates its 18th year—hosting industry panels and presenting films at Famous Players Canada Square in Toronto.
