All Reel to Real events are free and open to the publicReel to Real works with public and academic libraries across the state to combine the power of documentary cinema with community dialogue and action. Reel to Real helps libraries host public screenings of critically acclaimed PBS documentaries, followed by audience discussions with local experts. Libraries can choose from an array of films addressing a wide range of topics, including race and diversity, social justice, health care, history, the arts, education and civic engagement – some of the most critical issues facing communities in Wisconsin today.

Reel to Real events are designed to meet core community needs. The screenings successfully bridge the gap between viewing a film and creating community dialogue and action. We have discovered that participation in these events can have powerful effects on public dialogue, civic engagement and involvement. Simply put, Reel to Real seeks to turn viewers into doers.

Reel to Real is a partnership with the Wisconsin Library Association.
