Reel Stories believes that when women are better represented behind the scenes in the media, they are better reflected on the screen. Reel Stories is a non-profit summer program designed to give 13-18 year old women the skills to empower them to create their own media, to view current media critically and thoughtfully, and to aspire to leadership in their field. Working in small, collaborative groups and utilizing accessible technologies, the campers are encouraged to actively participate in every stage of the filmmaking process.
