About Us

We’ve got food issues….

The Reel Food Film Festival (RFFF) is coordinated by four non-profit organizations in Ottawa :  Just Food, USC Canada, One World Arts and The Good Food Box.  Together, we bring thought-provoking films and public discussion about food issues to the Ottawa region.

Our Mission is to raise awareness of food and agricultural issues through film and public discussion.

Our Vision is to be a vibrant, interactive film festival provoking thought and discussion on the challenging food and agricultural issues of our time, and actively engaging people to take action.

Our Goals are to hold two festivals per year showcasing issue-driven, high quality films; to be accessible (donation only _ accessible venue) and interactive; to connect people, encourage discussion and provide opportunities to learn and share; to support independent filmmakers; to be financially sustainable and manage the festival collectively with minimal infrastructure.

We Value: operating a non-profit festival, providing financial support for film makers, screening issue-driven and high quality films, screening locally made and Canadian films when possible, building creative communities, operating the festival in a financially sustainable and accountable way
