Daytime Education Program

Film Streams’ Daytime Education Program is a free program for teachers of grades 6-12 to integrate film into their curriculum. In addition to a free film screening, students are treated to a complimentary lunch, and post-show discussion with our Education Director or a local subject expert. Our program is designed to meet state standards in Media Arts as well as in individual subject areas.

2020-2021 Calendar

Program Objectives

Our program teaches film literacy and critical thinking while expanding appreciation for film as an art form. Virtual Daytime Education Program Videos are structured to achieve three goals that complement classroom learning:

  • Students learn to interpret films in a cultural context.
  • Students empathize with characters in ways beneficial to their own personal development.
  • Students analyze film as a medium of artistic expression.
The Logistics
  • Videos are uploaded onto Film Streams’ YouTube channel for viewing at home. Individual files of each video are available upon request to ease accessibility for students and teachers using on-campus technology.
  • Teachers receive a Resources guide with every film, as well as access to the video transcripts.
  • Videos are closed-captioned in English and Spanish.
  • Videos are thematic and discuss multiple films to strengthen a comprehensive understanding of a core theme or concept. Videos are designed to meet state standards in Media Arts as well as in individual subject areas.
  • Book a Zoom lecture and/or discussion on any film featured in our videos or any film currently within your curriculum. Discussions led by Film Streams’ Education Coordinator, Paul Sanchez.
