The Education Program caters to hundreds of elementary and high school students from Barrie and the surrounding area. The programming is designed to support current curricular needs and presents teachers and students with the opportunity to view films – which are often not available to see anywhere other than film festivals – in an event setting. We provide education resources to the teachers. This includes background information on the films, pre and post viewing activities and curriculum links. Programs are also available for extended French students. We work to ensure that all school groups who show interest in attending can be accommodated and make every attempt to schedule screenings to suit the needs of as many teachers and students as possible. The films are researched from a number of sources. Our Education programmers annually attend TIFF Kids International Film Festival and Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival.
As always, a very big thank you to all of the wonderful teachers and students who attend our programs – your interest and support is greatly appreciated!
