Held every other month during the academic year, these free hour-long virtual events are geared toward K-12 educators but open to all. Each event focuses on media with international content that is intended for general or teenage audiences. Participants are asked to screen the film (or selection of other audio materials) before attending the event. When possible, films will be widely available from online sources. Each film club typically features a scholar, educator, or practitioner with expertise in the film’s subject area and invites attendees to participate in discussion.
Below you can see the films we’ve discussed and resources provided by our speakers to further explore topics. Many of our events are recorded and published on this site.
