  • Press & Industry screenings and events are only for accredited passes.

    Be the first to see some of the year's most exciting new films! Reel Talk: Sneak Preview showcases the best English-language cinema of the year, from Hollywood galas to small-budget indies, and art-house dramas to homegrown documentaries.

    Part of the fun is the surprise: titles are not announced ahead of time, and all screenings are previews of films not yet released. Each event offers thought-provoking post-film discussion led by a critic or subject expert, and you are welcome to enjoy complimentary coffee, tea, and pastries before each screening.

    This season's host is Norm Wilner, the senior film writer for NOW Magazine. To give you an idea of what to expect: last season's lineup included Complete Unknown, Michael Moore in Trumpland, Miss Sloane, The Founder, The Sense of an Ending, and Alone in Berlin.

    The 2017-2018 season of Reel Talk: Sneak Preview will take place the following Sundays at 10am:

    October 15
