Jose Reyes

Art in Spanish Teacher

I am excited to return to DCI for a second year! This year I will teach Arts and Identity as part of the Bilingual Arts curriculum. My experience lies in marketing, film production and film studies. After interning in three feature films, I went on to write, direct and produce over 10 short films; my senior thesis film in undergrad, Boy Parts was chosen for the Cannes Film Festival short-film corner in 2013. I also worked in the tourism industry for two years, as a marketing assistant, developing digital content and marketing campaigns. I received a Master of Arts in Cinema Studies from NYU, and a Bachelor of Arts in Film and Media from the University of Tampa. My academic areas of interest are minority representation in film and television, popular culture, the war film and melodramas, film theory and criticism, and Lady Gaga.
