George Reyes 1995 Global Fellow

Summary 

Youth in the Teen Media Program (TMP) become creative technology users by participating in media arts and leadership activities. TMP offers a sequenced, multi-year curriculum that uses artistic expression to develop new technology and creative skill. Media Foundations classes introduce youth to the digital arts and media literacy. They hone their creative voice in Video, Photo, Digital Art, Music Production or Dance Studios; and finally, build concrete professional skills in advanced Leadership Groups.

Reyes went on to serve as director of the Teen Media Program at the Cambridge Community Art Center and director of International Programs at the New York Film Academy, and he later taught in the Communications Department at the Tecnologico de Monterrey in Mexico City. Most recently, Reyes has worked for the Sundance Film Festival, Outfest, and Sundance Institute in their International Feature Film Program, and was a 2009 Project Involve Film Independent Fellow.
