The Reel Film festival was established in 2015 under a different name which was The PavFilm Festival which was a very good success for the first year running, ln 2017 our festival director decided to change its name to The Reel Film Festival which was an even better success the reason this festival was started in the first place was for the film directors work to be seen and screened in a film festival our film festival director Mr. Philip Anthony McCarthy is no stranger to the film festival circle after having his own work he wrote directed and produced screened in Cannes himself in the short film corner to getting his work rejected in film festivals he knows the time and work that goes into making films so he wants to give every director a chance
