RECAP: Reel Expressions 2018

Another great year of the Reel Expressions International Teen Film Festival!

In its sixth year, the festival featured youth-produced films – narrative, animation, experimental and documentary – from the Hudson Valley and around the world! This film festival highlights youth creativity, features a teen perspective on many important issues, and showcases the incredible work done by the next generation of media-makers.

Thank you to our host for the evening, Ayo Nish!


A very special you to Kate Ketner, a student of The Harvey School, who designed our 3D printed Sparky Trophy!
