In its sixth 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! This teen showcase encourages youth creativity, invigorates our local community through the arts, and showcases the incredible work done by the next generation of media-makers. This year’s event includes an Interactive Opening Reception before the start of the showcase, along with a Q&A panel with the young filmmakers after the showcase. Awards will be given for first place, along with first and second runner-up. The films shown are most suitable for ages 13 and older, as many contain topics and themes not suitable for a younger audience.
