Hosting a TEACHED short film screening is a great way to bring your community together to discuss issues of race, education and equality. The films serve as conversation-starters and are easy to include in programs with guest speakers, panel discussions and audience participation.

HOW TO HOST A TEACHED SCREENING
Screen One Film at a Time
Screening each film individually gives you time to deeply immerse your audience in the issues each one addresses, e.g. the school-to-prison pipeline, education equality, tech diversity, etc. You may consider concluding your event with group brainstorming and action planning.
Screen Several Films
Our short films can be mixed and matched depending on your goals and audience. TEACHED films are about 10-20 minutes each so you can screen several at a time, depending on the issues you want to address. Go here for some program theme ideas.
Connect with your public library, community group, faith-based institution, college or other local organization that has space to screen the films and can help you invite a large and diverse audience.
