SHORTS: Reel Voices

Audacious. Expressive. Illimitable. This year’s twelve filmmakers from our Reel Voices documentary filmmaking program explore their sense of self through cultural, generational, and interpersonal identity.

Followed by a Q&A with our Reel Voices filmmakers.

Admission to the SHORTS: REEL VOICES program includes a post-screening reception from 2:00pm-3:30pm at The Patio next to Edwards Mira Mesa theater.

This is a FREE screening.
