Submission for Reel Exposure Teen Film and Photography Festival 2021
December 8, 2020 - February 13, 2021
The Art Effect’s annual Reel Exposure Teen Film and Photography Festival in Poughkeepsie, NY is open for submissions! The festival features photography and youth-produced short films – narratives, animation, experimental and documentary – created by talented young artists from across the world.
Reel Exposure brings together a diverse representation of youth-produced films and photography, from both newcomers to the craft, as well as established young artists. The selected films are screened in a showcase and the selected photography is hung as an exhibition.
Reel Exposure encompasses all of The Art Effect’s goals: to encourage youth creativity, to invigorate our local community through the arts, and to showcase the incredible work done by this next generation of media-makers.
Last year’s festival went digital and was a smashing success with viewers from across the globe tuning in, along with a live Q&A panel with festival finalists. This year’s festival will follow a similar format with film screenings will taking place online and the photographic exhibition taking place at The Poughkeepsie Trolley Barn, culminating in a live virtual awards ceremony.
The Art Effect is monitoring the spread of COVID-19 in New York and is prepared to continue to implement health and safety measures to protect our program participants and their families. We thank you for your continued support and we will keep everyone apprised of any major updates or changes to our programming that may occur as a result of COVID-19.
