Our Educational Programs introduce students to a deeper understanding of the wider world of cinema. We believe film is an art form that has the power to speak to youth, bridge cultures and illuminate the universality of the human experience. These special programs encapsulate the Film Society vision to inspire creativity, encourage introspection, and compel exploration. They are made possible by the generous contributions of passionate filmgoers and supporters of the arts, like you.
