Virtual Programs

When women & girls are better represented behind the scenes, they’re better reflected on the screen. That’s why Reel Stories is training the next generation of female filmmakers. During shelter- in- place, we’ve been hosting weekly virtual filmmaking programs/events & conducted our 1st ever virtual summer program to further support our community.

Below is Reel Stories growing list of 2021 Virtual Programs.

Thank you for all your hard work! Grace truly enjoyed the entire experience, and she got the opportunity to expand her skills working on a different genre of film. Her self confidence grew because of the camp and she continues to learn how to work with all different kinds of people. Grace will continue to be a part of Reel Stories for a long time to come!
