Real to Reel is a collaboration between filmmakers and storytellers. Filmmaking teams have only 5 days to write, shoot, edit—and screen a film based on stories from ten local storytellers. The kicker: none of the teams had heard the stories before they were presented.  On November 3rd, filmmaking teams will discover which story they have been paired with — and have five days to create a short film (less than 8 minutes) based on a true tale. The films premiere November 10th — the audience votes for their favorites — and one team walks away with a $1,000 cash prize!  Choose to attend the Storytelling Performance (Fri., Nov. 3rd @ 7:30pm) and/or the Film Premieres (Fri., Nov. 10th at 7:00pm and 9:00pm).  There is also a Double Feature Pass which allows entry into Friday and one screening on Friday. There are a limited number of the specially-priced DOUBLE HEADER passes. If the pass is sold out, simply place individual storytelling and film tickets in your cart.


All ticket and pass holders must be seated 15 minutes prior to showtime to guarantee a seat. After that time, pass holders will be admitted with the general audience.

All ticket and pass sales are final. There are no refunds or exchanges of tickets, party or festival passes. If you present a ticket purchased in error, we will accommodate you at a screening of your choice on a space-available basis. Visit the box office prior to standing in line.

Please familiarize yourself with our Seating Policy. There are no refunds for late arrivals.
