This special event includes short films and conversation, presented in partnership with the Media Smart Libraries Project.
What makes a film worth watching? Learn how to be a film sleuth and how to encourage kids to think more deeply about what they watch! Eric Bilodeau, PCFF Director of Programming, leads a PCFF Cinema Detective program teaching kids how to decode film. Afterward, educator Sarah Yahm introduces the new PCFF Film Hub, showing families, teachers, and librarians a new way to find quality films and resources that can inspire programming, spark conversation and make community connections.
The Media Smart Libraries project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Grant # LG-07-14-0045-14
NOTE: School and public librarians who attend this event will gain new competencies in digital media literacy that enable them to fully exploit the power of film as a resource for children, teens, and families; as well as provide them with the knowledge and skills to bring practical programs to their libraries that engage, inspire, and stimulate lifelong learning. Librarians who participate in this informative and fun event will receive a 2016 Festival All-Access Pass*
