On Wednesday, February 1st, at the Eureka High School Lecture Hall, Local Filmmakers Night screening series will be presenting a collection of short films by Eileen McGee.

Eileen McGee is an independent Humboldt County video producer and instructor.  She’s taught video production to adults and youth for art and education organizations in Humboldt County for more than 10 years. Her works include public service announcements, documentary pieces, journalistic interviews, studio productions, as well as poetry and music videos.

McGee considers her niche community media. Her works include monthly poetry videos with A Reason to Listen, and documentaries with governments and community groups, such as Finding Your Way Through; Humboldt County Task Force On Post Partum Mood Disorder and Uprooted:  A History of Hmong Gardeners.  

McGee is an alumni of College of the Redwoods’ Digital Media Program and she got her degree in Journalism and Women’s Studies at Humboldt State University. She studied political science along the way and is very interested in how the media shapes public opinion and culture.  She continued her education at the StoryCenter in Berkeley to learn digital storytelling and facilitates small workshops for groups and organizations.
