Since 1994, Children's Media Project has taught young people to take full creative license of the conception and realization of various media projects. The Poughkeepsie organization will celebrate 20 years of education on Saturday, September 27, with its second annual Reel Expressions Film Festival. Over 100 youth-produced films were submitted from around the world, and the festival will showcase nearly 13 of them—each under 10 minutes. Hypnagogic Hallucination, an animation piece from Belgium, concerns geographic diversity. Youth FX of Albany offers a documentary, Inside the Ring, about the benefits of afterschool programs in urban communities. Audiences can also expect an interactive media reception, a performance from local dance group M*Power, and the unveiling of Children's Media Project's new name. The festival will run from 5pm to 8:30pm at the Bardavon Opera House in Poughkeepsie. Tickets are $10.
