real to reel: the craft film festival

craft real to reel frankie

Call us unadventurous, but there’s something truly thrilling about seeing how stuff gets made. How does one weave a larger-than-life tapestry? What goes into creating traditional Mexican masks? How exactly do you become a craftivist?

The Real to Reel film festival answers our curiosity with 33 short films, each offering a behind-the-scenes look at artists and crafters from around the world. If you’ve ever wanted to witness a maker mid-process, elbow deep in clay – or perhaps, wondered how some clever folks turned an outdoor gym into a bread-making machine, these films will more than tickle your fancy.
