WHY HOST A TEACHED SCREENING?
If we are ever to live up to the potential of America to truly offer freedom and opportunity for all, it is vitally important that more Americans come together to address long-standing issues of race, justice and equality. Films offer a great way to bring people from all backgrounds together, share an experience and engage in candid conversation and action-planning. The TEACHED Series films are short (about 10-20 min. each), making them easy to incorporate in any size event.
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. 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.
