Celebrating its fifth year, the Reel Expressions International Teen Film Festival features youth-produced films – narrative, animation, experimental and documentary – from the Hudson Valley and around the world. Reel Expressions takes place on Friday, November 10 from 5:00 – 7:30 pm at the Bardavon 1869 Opera House, 35 Market St, Poughkeepsie, NY.
