Mission Statement

The Reel Change Documentary Film Festival seeks to expose relevant issues of the day to the James Madison University and the greater Harrisonburg communities. By bringing non-fiction films and filmmakers to the region, the festival hopes to initiate public dialogs in order to engage and educate audiences while celebrating the documentary medium as a tool for awareness, advocacy and change.
