ReFrame has been held at the end of January each year since 2005, and has become a celebrated event in Nogojiwanong / Peterborough’s arts and culture community. As an organization, ReFrame is focused on pushing the boundaries of social, cultural and political conversations, celebrating documentary film and media art, and supporting the growing local filmmaking community. Our strategic directions outline our commitment to ensuring the continued impact, relevance, and value of ReFrame to the diverse communities we serve.
