James Madison University and the School of Media Arts and Design announce the 4th Annual Reel Change Documentary Film Festival.
The festival exposes issues relevant to the JMU and greater Harrisonburg communities. It seeks to educate and engage audiences while celebrating the documentary medium as a tool for awareness, engagement, and change.
This year, the films will explore human rights, sexual violence, equality, social justice, diversity, environmental issues, change makers, and the empowerment of fulfilling personal passions. The festival will also sponsor a fundraiser/concert for Okutiuka, an orphanage and non-profit based in Huambo, Angola.
Following selected film screenings, audiences will hear insight from the filmmakers, experts and community members. By bringing non-fiction films and filmmakers to the region to present their work and participate in public dialogues, Reel Change hopes to create a dynamic atmosphere that inspires positive activism.
All films will begin at 7 PM at Court Square Theater.
