Mission & Beliefs

Artists have long been at the forefront of social innovation. The Wandering Reel believes in the power of film art to effect positive change, to bring people together through shared cultural experiences and to promote peace and justice around the world by inspiring conversation between individuals and communities through the common experience of cinema. By exposing underserved communities with films that are artful in their meaning and compassionate and conscious in their approach, the boundaries that divide people can be slowly stripped away, cultures can be enriched and peace grown across the globe.


In an era of unprecedented access to media, The Wandering Reel Traveling Film Festival seeks to create both a place and forum to show films, but also to share in conversation, consciousness and the experience of living community. We hope to inspire new storytellers to share their visions while exhibiting film art from many different eras and cultures around the globe.
