RECOMMENDATIONS
All films are listed with an age or grade
recommendation intended to assist parents,
guardians, and teachers when selecting
films. These recommendations are based
on our experience and knowledge, and
in consultation with educators, but we
recognize that youth respond in varied
ways. We therefore leave the final decision
to parents, guardians, and teachers. Where
necessary, we have noted instances of coarse
language, emotionally difficult scenes,
sexual situations, nudity and/or violence.

MESSAGE FROM TELEFILM
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Telefilm Canada is proud to be a part of
Reel 2 Real International Film Festival
for Youth and to salute the extraordinary
talent that this nation generates. It is
events such as this one that strengthen the
industry as a whole by drawing attention to
Canadian productions, developing talent
and fostering creative collaboration.
At Telefilm, our objective is to support talent
throughout Canada, and to encourage
the production of content that appeals
to audiences at home and abroad. Our
cinema entertains, enlightens, informs
and challenges; it fosters dialogue about
our identity and our values. It represents
us on the international stage, shapes our sense of belonging and contributes to
the diversity of our society.
Thank you to the organizers of Reel 2 Real International Film Festival for Youth
for bringing us together year after year. This event will provide festival-goers
with an opportunity to discover outstanding works and to enjoy the latest in
home-grown cinema.
Enjoy the festival!

Chair of the Board, Telefilm Canada
MESSAGE FROM THE NATIONAL FILM BOARD
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As a parent, filmmaker and, now, as
chairperson of the National Film Board of
Canada, I believe we have a responsibility
to ensure that Canadian youth have
the option of enjoying quality, socially
responsible, made-in-Canada media
productions – and the know-how and
tools to create their own.
I know that Reel 2 Real shares our
commitment. For over a decade, it has
been active in helping young audiences
to go beyond the traditional movie-going
experience and deepen their understanding
of filmmaking — be it through connecting
with directors or acquiring actual handson media-creation expertise.
That’s why we’re delighted to again be a part of R2R. And why we’re
complementing our great selection of NFB films for youth with outstanding festival
activities. Once again this year, we’re providing three animation workstations so
young festival-goers can learn how to create their own animated tales and make
some movie magic of their own. We’re again presenting the Best Animated Film
Award as part of the NFB’s ongoing commitment to animation excellence in
every region of Canada.
I’d like to take this opportunity to invite you to visit our online Screening Room
– we’re celebrating its first anniversary by adding High Definition and 3D films
to a collection of over 1,400 productions already accessible there. Watch them
on the web or on our popular new NFB iPhone app. Visit <NFB.ca> today and
start watching!
------Tom Perlmutter-----Government Film Commissioner and Chairperson of the National Film Board of Canada
REEL 2 REAL ONLINE AUCTION
The cuts in provincial funding for the arts are having a disastrous impact on arts
organizations across the Province. These cuts meant that Reel 2 Real had to curtail the
popular animation workshops offered year-round at the Museum of Vancouver. In an
effort to make up for this unexpected funding shortfall, Reel 2 Real launched an online
auction in January 2010.
We would like to thank all who participated in our online auction: Real Decoy who
created the auction site, the generous donors who supplied our items, everyone who
forwarded the link to friends and family, and all of our bidders. Thank you for helping
us to make a difference in the lives of youth.

In German with English subtitles
Ten-year-old Hannes must pass a dare before he can join the coolest group of kids in town, known
as the Crocodiles. He must climb the roof of the old brickyard. On his way down, the rusty ladder
gives way. Kai, who had an accident that left him quadriplegic, sees Hannes dangling from the
roof through his telescope and calls for help. The Crocodiles are grateful, but divided. Hannes
suggests making Kai a Crocodile, but the others are against it. How can wheelchair-bound Kai be
a useful member? Everything changes when the shop run by Hannes’ Mom is robbed, and Kai’s
unique skills are needed to help the Crocodiles on their quest to catch the thieves. Based on a
beloved German young-adult novel, this humourous, multi-award winning film explores themes of
understanding difference and finding the courage to accept help. Warning: course language, brief
scenes of fighting.

is posed to ten-year-old Sophia, the middle
daughter of a Moroccan family living in a

return to their homeland. Eight years later,
Sofia is a precocious, questioning and

George Ryga’s
After two years in a welfare residence for
boys, fifteen-year-old Snit Mandolin is
eager to return home to his family farm
in Saskatchewan, and his reclusive Aunt
Matilda. Faced by a community that still
shuns him, confronted by the impossibility
of surviving on his aunt’s farm, Snit falls in
with Johnny Swift, who makes moonshine
and sells it through a local bootlegger. The
boys work together and become fast friends.
Soon Snit finds first love with a free-spirited
local girl, Robin. Their adventure is interrupted by the enigmatic and unpredictable Roy
Kane, the district’s private cop, who uses the boys to get to the bootlegger. Dogged
by Kane, betrayed by a bootlegger and plagued by the ghosts of the past, the boys’
friendship is broken. Alone once more in the community that rejected him, Snit comes
to a violent crossroads. This beautiful adaptation of the acclaimed Canadian novel by
George Ryga stars two Vancouver actors, Gabrielle Rose and Alexia Fast. Gary Fisher
wrote the screenplay. PG: course language; violence
THE INDIAN

De indiaan
Ineke Houtman / Netherlands / 2009 / 90 min
In Dutch with English subtitles
Eight-year-old Koos is very close to his loving
Dutch parents who adopted him from Peru
when he was a baby. When he finds out that
his mother is expecting a baby, Koos worries
that his parents won’t love him as much
as their own biological baby. Through a
chance meeting with a Peruvian boy named
Illari, Koos learns that he is an Indian and a
descendant of the Inca people. Determined
to embrace his roots, Koos goes on a journey
of self-discovery in order to find out who he really is and where he comes from. This
sensitive and insightful film looks at the fears and curiosities some adopted children
experience. The Indian is also a wonderful reminder that the love between a parent and
child isn’t defined by geography or ancestry, but by the love a family shares with one
another.

Tomm Moore, Nora Twomey / Ireland/France/ Belgium / 2009 / 75 min
English subtitles will be read aloud by an
experienced reader.
Mr. Hoshi, a young and energetic grade 6
teacher, wants his students to learn about
the connection between life and food. He
decides that in their final year of elementary
school, the class will adopt a piglet and care
for it over the course of a year, but at the
end of the year, the pig will be eaten. The
students eagerly accept the challenge. They
name the piglet “P-Chan,” build a home
for it, and take turns caring for it. The more
attached they grow to P-Chan, the more difficult the question of the pig’s fate becomes.
Based on a true story that became a subject of national controversy in Japan, School Days
With a Pig is a thoughtful and warmhearted engagement with issues of consumption,
quality of life, and personal responsibility.
Young Brendan lives in a remote medieval outpost under siege from barbarian raids. A new life
of adventure beckons when a celebrated master illuminator arrives from foreign lands carrying
an ancient but unfinished book, brimming with secret wisdom and powers. To help complete the
magical book, Brendan has to overcome his deepest fears and venture into the enchanted forest
where mythical creatures hide. It is here that he meets the fairy Aisling, a mysterious young wolf-girl,
who helps him fulfill his dangerous quest. Magic, fantasy, and Celtic mythology come together in a
colourful story about the power of imagination and faith to carry humanity through dark times.
PG: course language; violence.

Brendan, jeune moine de douze ans, vit dans l’abbaye fortifiée de Kells en Irlande, au 9ème

talent prodigieux. Leur amitié entraînera le jeune moine dans de rocambolesques aventures.
Afin d’achever le fabuleux livre du Frère Aidan, Brendan entrera dans la forêt enchantée où de
dangereuses créatures mythiques se cachent. C’est là qu’il rencontrera Aisling, la jeune enfant loup
qui l’aidera tout au long de son périple à défier ses propres peurs. Brendan va-t-il réussir sa mission
et prouver que l’art est la meilleure fortification contre les barbares?

Talent Lab (April 16)
Talent Lab aims to ensure that students are inspired
and equipped to analyze, appreciate, explore,
create and share screen media. Through film
viewing and master classes, students get to work with
and learn from some of Vancouver’s top film industry
professionals.
Students attend a program of short films in the morning,
and a workshop of their choice in the afternoon.
The goal of the Talent Lab Master Classes is to give
students a chance to work with a professional artist
in their area of expertise. Master Classes are lecturebased with some hands-on activities and interactive
discussions, providing students with new insights, skills,
and creative ideas. This program is recommended for
high school students in grades 8-12. School groups
and individual students are welcome.
Master Classes include: Animation, Digital Filmmaking,
Directing, Documentary, Green Screen, Screenwriting,
Sound Design, and Writing for Shorts.
Youth Jury Program
Our Youth Jury Program fosters a deeper appreciation
for independent film from Canada and around the
globe. This popular program includes a feature
film screening, followed by a free workshop in film
criticism. A challenging and interactive experience,
students sharpen their critical eye, gain an appreciation
for different genres of film, and learn what makes a
film great. Two Youth Juries are chosen from among
many successful workshop graduates (ages 9-12 and
13-19). These juries evaluate every film in their age
category, and chose the award winners.
Young Filmmakers Showcase
Sunday, April 11, 5:00 pm at the Vancity Theatre
Join us to celebrate the work of talented young
filmmakers from British Columbia. All submissions can
be viewed on our website. A one-hour program of
selected films will be screened, and are eligible to
win one of five prizes.
Year-round programs
In our effort to seek innovative ways to engage youth
in discovering their community’s stories and learning
the history of our multicultural city, Reel to Real also
presents a variety of year-round programs and
screenings.
Animating History is an innovative workshop
program for youth that connects media literacy
and storytelling with building a sense of community
through the creative exploration of local history.
During these workshops youth create a one-minute
historical animated film at the Museum of Vancouver
and Port Moody Station Museum. Students work
with a professional animator and learn “hands on”
all parts of the animation process. The full day course
includes a museum tour, storyboarding the film’s plot,
art making, camera-work, and editing.
BC Stories empowers youth in inner-city and rural
schools to conceive, plan, shoot, edit, and screen
short animated films that speak about their lives,
language and community. The workshops provide
low income and Aboriginal youth unprecedented
access to innovative training and facilities for digital
image making. The program also improves access
to media arts and technology education to the many
talented youth who are not served by the traditional
education system.
Family Films Series
Throughout the year, children ages eight and up
can enjoy Sunday afternoon screenings of the best
international children’s films. Please sign up for our
monthly newsletter for monthly announcements.
