Renee ‘Shi’ Wisdom

Reelworld Film Festival

Now in its 18th year, Reelworld Film Festival takes audiences on journeys that deeply explore the world’s most pressing social issues from the perspectives of diverse filmmakers. Through socially relevant films, Virtual Reality (VR) experiences, video games, and conversation, Reelworld uses storytelling as a tool for social change. Building on the success of 2017's New Perspectives, Reelworld, in partnership with Northside Hip Hop Archive, is pleased to join Harbourfront Centre's Kuumba festival.

Reelworld Film Festival New Perspectives presents “Black History - A Journey Through Hip Hop”


This year’s Reelworld New Perspectives reframes hip hop as a powerful continuation of oral tradition by screening music videos and related short films of three unique and dynamic female artists who will explore a broad range of social issues ranging from themes of black identity and empowerment through the frame of historical and social context to challenging harmful stereotypes and providing a historical lens and a bridge to a longstanding oral tradition.

Following the screening showcase Mark Campbell founder of Northside Hip Hop will moderate a conversation with the artists; filmmakers Alison Duke, Cazhmere and performer Renee ‘Shi’ Wisdom.
