Pepperdine's ReelStories Film Festival provides an amazing opportunity for Seaver undergraduate students to tap into their creative side and spotlight stories from their own lives and community, regardless of major. Students are encouraged to collaborate as they craft short films that highlight important stories and values. 

ReelStories Film Festival was founded in 2009 by Pepperdine Alumna Susie Lee and a group of equally passionate students as an opportunity for student filmmakers to instill change and explore humanity by creating films that captivate and challenge the audience.
