EDUCATION GUIDE FOR FILM SCREENINGS AND EVENTS

Film is a powerful educational tool. Not just to keep children still or to introduce media studies topics, but to bring alive subjects that can seem very remote from today's world.

The Big Picture Theater & Café believes in the value of the cinematic experience and  to continue its effort to provoke critical thinking, start conversation, and encourage action through film.

Big Picture has tremendous resources of films that cover a wide range of curriculum areas such as environmental studies, social studies, literature in film, world history, religion, and political science. In working with the MountainTop Film Festival, The Human Rights Watch Film Festival, and other organizations we have the ability to offer a vast library of films and materials.

We offer an opportunity for schools and other educational institutions to organize screenings, Q&As and use related curriculum guides.

Our vision is to ensure that young people in Vermont have the opportunity to learn about film in all its richness and creative possibilities.
