From serving as a teacher resource to creating curriculum-enriching programs, Aspen Film plays a proactive role in bringing meaningful film opportunities to regional elementary, middle, and high schools. Our core programs include:
Making Movies Matter: Aspen Film offers timely documentary short and feature-length films to schools from our Shortsfest and Filmfest lineups. Presentations are accompanied by experts to share local perspectives on global issues. Films we've previously shown in the Making Movies Matter series include: One Bridge to the Next, Taking Root: The Vision of Wangari Maathai, 1,000 Journals, Come Back to Sudan and Sergio.
Young Filmmaker Labs: Free small group sessions provide an opportunity for high school students to share video works-in-progress and receive feedback from visiting filmmakers.
