She stayed there for 15 years.
Thank you to all of you who attended our films and helped ensure our success. We are nothing without your continued attendance and support. Thank you also to our many sponsors who support us in bringing quality films to Huntsville. Without each and every one of you, viewers and sponsors alike, we would not be able to offer financial support to DVD collections for our libraries, scholarships for students, and film project funding. Have a wonderful summer and we will see you in September.

Each year aspiring students who reside in the Huntsville and Lake of Bays area have the opportunity to apply for scholarship support through Reel Alternatives. Although there are no set funding amounts Reel historically supported students based on need, the project they have presented, or the type of school program that they will be attending. Past winners have completed short film documentaries, and attended some of the best film and media study programs in the Province. Applications are available in late April and are available from the Huntsville High School.
