The Reel Puppetry Film Festival celebrates the craft and art of filmmaking with live puppetry performances.
The Reel Puppetry Film Fest will bring a variety of films, some of which cannot be found publicly, to our puppet and film loving audience. A final performance on Saturday night, The Best of Reel Puppetry, will award the top films in a variety of categories.
Filmmaking, as it relates to performing arts, is a relatively new medium. Though one that is progressing and changing at an amazing rate. For us, this medium of film allows puppets to be seen in a new way, and reach audiences worldwide through movie theaters, festivals, personal websites, and online streaming sites like Vimeo and YouTube.
From extraordinarily polished films to the genuinely handcrafted productions, “Reel Puppetry” strives to showcase just a sampling of what is currently being created in this medium. We hope you enjoy what you see, and that you will be inspired by what is out there and consider what might be possible for the future.
