PBS Online Film Festival Starts Next Week

July 13, 2018 | Harris Pacey

Hello Reel 13 fans! The PBS Online Film Festival starts next week. The 7th year of the festival, PBS Online Film Festival will return for a seventh year July 16-27 and will feature 25 short-form independent films from multiple public media partners and PBS member stations. The festival will be available via PBS and station digital platforms, including PBS.org. As in previous years, films will also be available to stream on YouTube and Facebook.

This year, two films come from our very own Reel 13: The first is Stronghold of Resistance: Sable Island & Her Legendary Horses This short film takes viewers to the shores of Sable Island, a remote strip of land less than a mile wide, whose only full-time inhabitants are a herd of near-mythical wild horses; no human attempts at colonization have ever succeeded. The other is Reel 13 Short Film Winner Wind Back. A sealed door divides a little boy from his mother. He will go to great lengths to be with her, but when that barrier breaks down, the boy will have to become an adult.

Please vote for your favorite films and represent your local station starting next week!
