 Reel Stories is an annual February weekend festival of thought-provoking documentary and feature films. The common thread in this festival is that all the films touch on reality, either they are documentaries of a factual nature, or they are films that are inspired by real people or events. Screenings are at the Uptown Theatre in Downtown Barrie
