Our Story

Take Two Film Academy was founded in 2009 with a simple mission: to make filmmaking and media literacy education accessible to a generation of young people. Since then, we’ve served thousands of students at dozens of schools in New York City, Long Island, New Jersey, and Boston. Our student-produced films have been featured at the Tribeca Film Festival each year since 2013, and have earned rave reviews at a variety of local film festivals. We use a hands-on approach to learning that allows kids and teenagers to control every step of the creative process while learning invaluable (and fun) lessons along the way.

Our Founder

Megan Kiefer is the founder of Take Two Film Academy. A vocal proponent of film’s power to create positive change in the world, she’s been teaching storytelling and filmmaking to young people since 2004. She’s the author of The Third Dimension of Literacy, and the founder of two retail companies. Kiefer is also an active member of the Summit Series and the Charles & Lynn Schusterman REALITY Initiative. She holds a BA from Tufts University and an MBA from Babson College.
