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:

Filmmakers to the Classrooms: International filmmakers visit dozens of classes to screen their films and share their culture with students and teachers in a variety of subjects.

Schools to the Festival: Aspen Film provides free and/or discounted tickets to students from regional elementary through high schools to attend age-appropriate public presentations at Filmfest and Shortsfest.

Schools to the Theater: These free, age-appropriate screenings are specifically designed for elementary, middle, and high-school students and provide enrichment in a variety of curricula.

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.
