‘Get Reel With Your Dreams’ virtual event exposes students to TV and film careers

NEW YORK (WABC) – An exciting conversation took place on Wednesday with high school students about careers in the television and film industry.

Eyewitness News presenter Sade Baderinwa hosted the 12th annual “Get Reel With Your Dreams” virtual event.

ABC7NY and The Walt Disney Company worked together to bring this inspiring event to life. Disney is committed to reinventing tomorrow by amplifying underrepresented voices and untold stories, as well as championing the importance of accurate representation in media and entertainment. The “Get Reel with Your Dreams” program plays a key role in Disney’s efforts to inspire and empower the next generation of storytellers and innovators to dream of the future, develop their talents and skills, and become what they imagine they can be.

During the program, students heard from professionals in the journalism and production industry. The students were selected after applying to participate in the event.

They are now encouraged to submit a self-produced Public Service Announcement (PSA) for a chance to enter the Reel Video Awards and win money for their education.

The submission deadline is about a month away and the winners will be announced in a virtual ceremony at the end of June.
