Reel to Real (Canadian TV series)
Reel to Real was a Canadian television series, which aired on the Rogers TV network of cable community channels, as well as nationally on Canada's Independent Film Channel. The series was hosted by a variety of Toronto-area film critics over the course of its run, including Christopher Heard, John Foote, Katrina Onstad, Richard Crouse and Geoff Pevere.
Originally produced by Rogers Cable's division in Oshawa, the series premiered in 1992 and was picked up for provincewide distribution the following year. Heard and Foote were the original hosts. The program later moved its production location from Oshawa into Toronto; later in the 1990s, the program's distribution was further expanded to all Rogers TV outlets across Canada.
