The Reel Deal: Reel Stories

The Barrie Film Festival’s Annual Winter Doc Series Is Back

The Barrie Film Festival’s Reel Stories festival returns to a screen near you next month.

The 10 day film event aims to discover extraordinary things about the world through documentaries and dramas inspired by true events and real people. In light of social distancing measures, this year’s event will be held entirely online.

Once again, Reel Stories will screen films over 10 days from March 5 -14 via the BFF’s website. One of the highlights of this year’s edition is the Canadian premiere of Camino Skies, a New Zealand/Australia feature about six people’s journeys as they walk the historic Camino de Santiago.
