Education and Training:
MFA Fine Arts, UC San Diego
Amy Reid is a filmmaker whose work examines the intersections between gender, national identities, and labor. By exploring observational approaches and expanding upon formal cinematic notions of time, structure, and narrative, her work questions how labor is constructed in the filmic form. She has participated in selected screenings nationally and internationally and has been a film programmer for the Brooklyn-based series caleld Las Chicas presents since 2012. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Cooper Union before graduating with an MFA in Visual Arts from UC San Diego and recently completed the Whitney Independent Study program in New York, where she has continued to refine her research interests in relation to her filmmaking practice.
