What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Reel Kids

The concept behind Reel Kids is to expose children from ages 9-17 to areas of the industry that people of color have routinely ignored: producing, screenwriting, film reviewing, and the technical aspects of the film industry. Instead of concentrating on acting and directing, the Reel Kids program will explore a variety of disciplines within the multi-billion dollar motion picture industry and make it FUN!
