The festival, showcasing some of the most creative young filmmakers from Rochester and beyond, takes place on  Wednesday, February 22 from 2:30-5:00 p.m. in the Otto A.

The festival will be interactive and the area teens will present each film. The films will not be judged or screened in order to keep the content as real as possible for viewers. 100-150 students will be in attendance for the Real2Reel Youth Film Festival.
