Reel Lives International
Each year, Reel Lives is establishing sustainable programming with a partner organization in a different developing country, and training a set of local trainers to implement a contextually appropriate version of our curriculum and methodology.
Collaboratively we will build a funding infrastructure to make the project sustainable beyond the direct-service cycle. Partner organizations in each location will provide a permanent facility for a media lab, two staff trainees, and recruitment/outreach support.
Each participant will be paired with a graduate mentor of the Reel Lives program via Skype. The cultural exchange between the international programs will be a unique and invaluable experience for mentors and mentees.
As our network of programs grows, we will shed light on more corners of the world.
