Save the dates for ReFrame 2021!

Peterborough’s beloved doc fest gives at-home audiences a full week to stream films, January 22-29, 2021.

It’s been a long year, and after everything we’ve been through, we couldn’t be happier to announce that ReFrame is back – with a virtual twist, and extended dates! For a full week in late-January, get ready to stream quality documentary films and participate in special events, filmmaker talks, and so much more! Seven Days, over 40 films, and lots of bonus content. Consider this a brand new, special edition of ReFrame!

Year after year, the festival brings the community together in the depths of winter, and we have been working hard to make sure the show still goes on this winter. The shift to a virtual platform brings many benefits to audiences and increases accessibility. For the first time ever, you will be able to view selected films from the comfort of your own home; no more braving the harsh winter winds and slippery sidewalks! Not only that, but all films will be available on-demand for the entire festival, so no more missing out! No scheduling conflicts, no lines – just high quality documentary films, on your own time, in your own home.

And for the first time ever, audiences across Ontario will be able to enjoy ReFrame. Make sure to spread the word to your friends and family and let them in on one of the province’s best-kept film festival secrets. From musical legends to international conglomerates, unlikely activists and political superheroes, ReFrame curates films that feature powerful storytelling, diverse voices, and urgent social and environmental justice issues. We showcase local filmmakers and connect international stories to community issues, delivering content that is meaningful, educational, and impactful to Peterborough audiences and beyond.

All passes and tickets will be sold online this year at (no in-store ticket sales!). Early Bird Virtual Festival Passes go on sale November 12, but quantities are limited, so get yours before they sell out!
