Wandering Reel Traveling Film Festival returns to the Tim Noah Thumbnail Theater in Snohomish with a new set of award winning short films sure to stir the consciousness of the local community. This time, the festival will showcase their Curators Choice program, a hodgepodge of inspiring films from each of their regular programs as chosen in collaboration with Tim Noah Thumbnail Theater.
Screening followed by Q&A discussion with festival director, Michael Harrington.
Wandering Reel is a traveling short film festival with a focus on bringing meaningful films to communities with limited or no access to compassionate, thought-provoking cinema. We strive to engage our audiences in deeper conversation about the role of cinema, and how films can relate to community, conscious living, and contribute to making the world a stronger and more unified place.
"Wandering Reel offers films that are made with purpose, that we think will inspire, that we hope will stay with our audience long after the credits have rolled," said festival director Michael Harrington. "This is how we change the world, one community and one film at a time." Last year's award winning filmmaker Philippe Vaucher said, "Wandering Reel reminded me of why I started making films in the first place: it is possible to change people's lives through thoughtful art and moving art."
In addition to showing thought-provoking cinema, Wandering Reel's mission is to engage its audiences in ways that many other film festivals cannot do: the community-centric format is designed to maximize audience participation and cultivate community building. "By exposing communities with films that are compassionate in their approach and passionate in their purpose, we hope to inspire conversation and collaboration between individuals and communities through the common experience of cinema," remarks Mike. Thusly, after each screening, the festival curator facilitates conversations with the audience and, when available, with the filmmakers as well.
