This hands-on demonstration will highlight the varied content and approaches offered by three different film education programs: film studies for adults at Bryn Mawr Film Institute; a film seminar for middle school girls of color at the Belcourt Theatre; and Image, Sound, and Story, the Jacob Burns Film Center's K-12 media education curriculum. Attendees will get first-hand experience with these art houses’ approaches to teaching and learning.
