CAFILM Education has been offering free education programs to Bay Area schools for more than 30 years, welcoming thousands of students to the Festival to view new films and meet filmmakers from around the world.
We continue this tradition with two free online programs available to exclusively to K-12 schools across the country:
A selection of narrative features, documentaries, and shorts programs is carefully curated from the general Festival program and offered for free to K-12 schools around the Bay Area and across the country as weekday matinees in the theater and throughout the Festival online. Screenings are followed by Q&As with filmmakers and subject experts, and supplemented by free curriculum resources including film-analysis toolkits, lesson plans, and discussion guides to help teachers incorporate the films into their class curriculum.
FILMMAKERS GO TO SCHOOL
For those schools and students unable to travel to the theater, we offer an additional interactive experience through our Filmmakers Go to School program. Throughout the Festival (and often beyond), CAFILM Education staff bring filmmaker guests into the community to meet with students in their classrooms and school auditoriums, or at nearby venues, for in-depth discussions about the art and craft of filmmaking.
