As a mission-based cinema, Film Streams is committed to presenting new and innovative film opportunities that celebrate the medium while expanding appreciation for it as an art form.
Supported by grants from the Gifford Foundation and the Jetton Charitable Fund through the Omaha Community Foundation, our student programs present a variety of opportunities throughout the year for both students and teachers to get involved with our programming. Focusing on film literacy and critical thinking, students learn how to interpret films in a cultural context, empathize with characters in ways beneficial to their own personal development, and analyze film as an art form.
Please see below for details about our year-round schedule of Daytime Screenings for Visiting Classes, as well as our monthly Student Night (the first Monday of every month) and Film Club.
Daytime Screenings for Visiting Classes
Our Daytime Screenings present a wonderful opportunity for high school teachers to integrate film into their curriculum by bringing classes to Film Streams' Ruth Sokolof Theater. Films offered (below) relate to numerous courses and meet various Nebraska Curriculum Standards. All screenings are followed by discussions led by Film Streams Education Committee Members.

What is it?
Film Streams' Film Club is a way for students in the Omaha-Council Bluffs area to (1) enjoy the best new American independent films, foreign films, and documentaries made throughout the world, (2) experience repertory selections from throughout the history of cinema, and (3) critically engage the medium through guided discussions about art, subjectivity, and culture.
