Award-winning film maker Ryan Reece to screen “Illation” at Dalton State

Posted on

Dalton State adjunct faculty member Ryan Reece, who teaches dual enrollment English at Northwest Whitfield High School, will screen his film “Illation” at Dalton State’s Goodroe Auditorium in Gignilliat Hall on January 19 at 6 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Reece will hold a Q&A after the screening.

Reece, who also teaches Introduction to Screenwriting at Dalton State, has garnered attention in the independent film industry with his screenplay and self-produced short film, “Illation”. He has received recognition at 19 festivals and competitions across the U.S., including the Tennessee International Indie Film Festival, the Open Gate International Film Festival, the God Country Family Film Festival and the Georgia Shorts Film Festival.

Reece completed an MFA in Nonfiction Screenwriting at the University of Georgia in 2016. He was able to gather a crew of other filmmakers in the Chattanooga/Northwest Georgia area to shoot “Illation” in 2020. 

His screenwriting class, taught in the evening during the summer semester, is also available for college credit. 

“It’s a great course for anyone interested in writing or film,” said a student who attended the class. “It pushes you creatively and gives you ‘real world’ experience in writing on a deadline and a table read.”
