ReFrame Film Festival 2020

Following its most successful season to date, the ReFrame Film Festival is set to launch its annual celebration of documentary film and media art, January 23-26, 2020.
Hosted at venues throughout Downtown Peterborough, ReFrame 2019 featured 71 films from around the world, with 12 made by Peterborough filmmakers. Nearly 17,000 attendees enjoyed Q&A’s and post-film discussions with 31 visiting filmmakers and special guests, all made possible by 150 volunteers.

Organizers have now finalized their selections for the 2020 festival, and have worked hard to curate a program that will excite and provoke audiences to action in their communities. “I am so excited about this year’s program – it highlights political and social struggles here in Canada and around the world, honours the work of trailblazing activists, and challenges the traditional documentary form. We can’t wait to share these incredible stories with Peterborough,” says Creative Director, Amy Siegel.

Early bird tickets were launched this week, and are available while supplies last at Festival Passes are $50 right now, and provide access to three days of the year’s best in documentary film and media art. Thursday opening night tickets are available for an additional $10.

Prices go up once early birds are sold out, so act fast! Festival passes will be $60 (with discounts available for students, seniors and under-waged individuals), and Thursday night tickets will be $15 ($10 with a festival pass).

Day passes for Friday, Saturday and Sunday will also be available for $25 each.
In-store tickets and passes will be available December 2, 2019 in Peterborough at the GreenUP Store (378 Aylmer St. N.), and Watson & Lou (383 Water St.), and in Lakefield at Happenstance Books and Yarn (44 Queen St.).
