WHY HOST A TEACHED SCREENING?
Film can be a powerful tool to enlighten, educate and motivate, and screenings are a great way to bring people from many backgrounds together to share an experience and engage in candid conversation. The TEACHED films are short (about 10-20 min. each), making them easy to incorporate in any size event. When you host a TEACHED screening, we’ll provide you with artwork, question guides and social media support.
SOME IDEAS FOR HOSTING A TEACHED FILM 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 activities and action planning.
Screen Several Films
Our short films can be mixed and matched depending on your goals and audience. The 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, university or other local organization to help reach a large and diverse audience.
Include Guest Speakers
Organizers have included speakers from issue area experts to elected leaders, students and educators. If you’d like to inquire about having Director Kelly Amis or any of the TEACHED film “stars” speak at your event, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
