School to Screen is a free program that invites grades 6-12 to integrate film into their curriculum. Educators and their classes visit the Ruth Sokolof Theater to attend a film screening, enjoy a free lunch, and engage in a critical discussion about film with Film Streams’ Education Manager, Paul Sanchez.

Program Objectives

Our program teaches film literacy and critical thinking while expanding appreciation for film as an art form.

The Logistics

  • Screenings begin at 11am and are followed by a guided post-show discussion ending no later than 2pm.
  • Guided post-show discussions with Education Manager and community leaders allow students to critically engage the medium through the lens of art, subjectivity, culture, and representation.
  • Students and teachers are treated to a free, healthy lunch.
  • Teachers are given supplemental materials like discussion guides, worksheets, and activities for each film in the series to utilize in the classroom before and after their visit.
