Since our inception 8 seasons ago, ReelHeART International Film Festival has always made a point of communicating with the filmmaking community far and wide.
If you didn't make it to ReelHeART, you didn't have to worry you'd be left out because since our first year we included you right up until the awards.
We specifically created a "Virtual Award Ceremony", so that filmmakers could all tune in at the same time to see if their film or documentary won an award.
WITH SO MANY FILMS GRACING OUR SCREENS WE TRY TO GIVE AUDIENCES A WAY TO HELP SELECT THEIR FILM CHOICES. YOU CAN VIEW 30+ TRAILERS FROM ReelHeART RIGHT HERE,
