The REEL Thanksgiving Challenge (RTC) is an annual two-week-long fundraising event, presented by the Directors Guild of Canada, in support of the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. This will be the 9th year for the RTC and it has raised a total of $1,280,000 since its inception!

The RTC is structured like a contest where different film and television productions around British Columbia compete to see who can raise the most money. The donations that these teams raise is greatly magnified through daily sponsored prizes from various organizations that support this great cause.

This year the event will be running from September 27th to October 8th. Everybody is encouraged to get involved and support the Greater Vancouver Food Bank to provide healthy food to those in need.

The film industry has certainly been hit hard by the pandemic—and so has our community! There is no better time to rally together in support of those in need.
