Reel Aging

Reel Aging: Films for the Generations is an initiative that ties compelling documentary film and media to ongoing policy and community based efforts advancing the rights and well being of a growing aging population.

Reel Aging began with a residency for media makers and a convening of over 40 nonprofits, foundations, and businesses that are leading efforts to protect the rights and serve the needs of older adults.

Reel Aging is coordinated by Working Films with support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
