Upcoming Events Fall, 2019 A Reel Thanksgiving Challenge The REEL Thanksgiving Challenge (RTC) is an annual two week long fundraising event, presented by the BC Film and Television industry, in support of the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. It has raised a total of $785,835.08 since its inception and this year the hope is to hit the $1,000,000 milestone. 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 amounts that these teams raise are greatly magnified through daily sponsored prizes from various organizations that support this great cause. This year the event will be running from September 30 to October 11. Keep updated on this year’s fundraiser by visiting reelthanks.com and following #ReelThanks19 on Social Media.
