Reel Indie LogoA key music world calendar event, indieWEEK is embracing sight AND sound for the first time, with a new companion program – the Reel Indie Film Festival.

Acclaimed producer Avi Federgreen (One Week, Still Mine, Moon Point) takes on the RiFF role of executive director.  His mandate:  to support filmmakers’ music-oriented stories – in the forms of independent short and feature-length films, and music videos.

This year’s Festival takes place October 16th – 20th in Toronto, a filmmaker’s mecca and media launchpad for some of the industry’s brightest young talent. RiFF seeks to cover the gamut of musical inspiration, from the teenage dream of following in the footsteps of the Rolling Stones, to using music as a platform for one’s thoughts and beliefs.  Films that make us think, that move us, and that capture the essence of a band or song.

“Selected films will showcase different aspects of music,” says Federgreen. “We are looking for stories that capture music’s cultural and emotional history, as well as music’s ability to move people.”


Wild Records is an LA indie music label comprised of young Hispanic musicians, it is run by Irishman, Reb Kennedy. Wild is an unconventional family, reminiscent of the early days of Sun Records, all of its musicians write and perform 50s Rock ‘n Roll. If Wild is going to continue to grow and reach broader audiences, its current business model will cease to work.

Reel Indie Opening NightThe opening night party will take place at Revival (783 College Street) starting at 9pm with music from The David Barrett Trio and special guests Bathurst Station.
