The first screening in the Real2Reel Film Festival is “Connecting the Dots”

About the Documentary – Connecting the Dots is the first feature documentary of its kind to offer a raw and intimate look at youth mental health from a global perspective. With heart-felt poignant stories of lived experience, the film exclusively showcases young voices breaking barriers surrounding youth mental health. Through highly cinematic and character driven storytelling, Connecting the Dots is emotional, reflective and hopeful. Our future leaders are speaking up. It’s time to listen.
