Director Jeff Barnaby won the Best First Feature Award at the Vancouver Film Festival, and lead actress Kawennáhere Devery Jacobs was nominated for the Canadian Screen Award for Best Actress. A Huffington Post reviewer called Rhymes for Young Ghouls "engaging and powerful. Well-told, well-paced, and nicely poised between moments of tension and tenderness." Cinemascope said, simply, "It kicks ass."
