Our Vision

Reedy Reels Film Festival encourages the promotion, education and appreciation of independent filmmaking in the Greenville community. The art of independent film brings a diverse edge to the Upstate by reaching outside of the commercial cinema multiplex. This festival encourages the creation of film in the Upstate and beyond while raising awareness and appreciation of the art form.
