The Reel Impact Festival explores how motion picture is used to spread messages, drive change and achieve commercial goals for social impact organizations. The festival is focused on short films and “promo reels” that social impact organizations- both for profits and not for profits- leverage as part of their strategic communications.

Join us for an extraordinary day focusing on marketing, branding, communication, and storytelling, as well as celebrating social entrepreneurs and impact organizations through filmmaking, intimate conversations and networking with like-minded people.

Join us for two events:
1) The Reel Impact Workshops: an afternoon of hands-on interactive media training sessions to build your brand and tell your story (more info on the workshops below)
2) The Reel Impact Festival: an evening of curated video reels, inspiration and networking
**Tickets available for workshop training and festival, or just for the evening festival.

For more information visit our website: Reel Impact Festival.
