Nashville Film Festival (NashFilm), a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts advocacy organization, is proud to introduce the NashFilm Education Program for 2021. Designed with the goal of encouraging media literacy and creating greater cross-cultural understanding in students grades 7-12, the NashFilm Education Program strives to transform students from idle viewers to critical thinkers when it comes to film. This program will offer FREE opportunities for students to experience independent, foreign, documentary films along with professionally developed acedemic study guides. All donations made through THE BIG PAYBACK will go directly to funding our new Education Program!
*FREE arts education and film screening opportunities for students.
*Students have the opportunity to see independent, documentary and foreign films that they would not otherwise have the opportunity to see.
*Students have the opportunity to engage in discussion with filmmakers, actors, documentary subjects, artists, professors and other industry professionals.
*Educators are welcome to plan additional activities for their students at the library the day of the screening.
*Students have the opportunity to discuss the films with their peers AND reflect on themselves and the world around them in a safe space.
Our goal this year is to raise $5,000 from 200 donors in support of this new education initiative.
