THE MVFF EDUCATION PROGRAM IS NOW OPEN FOR REGISTRATION!
MVFF Education offers FREE live and virtual field trips for students around the Bay Area and across the country to attend the 46th Mill Valley Film Festival. Join us October 6-22 for another season of great new films and special guests!
We are excited to share the festival with you and your students, with 14 different narrative features, documentaries, and shorts programs to choose from. The MVFF Education program includes:
- In-theater and online screenings of films curated from the full festival program
- Live Q&As with filmmakers, film subjects, and subject experts
- Curriculum resources for teachers and students including lesson plans, discussion guides, and activity toolkits
- Filmmakers Go to School visits to Bay Area classrooms for festival guests from around the world to meet and speak with students
IN-THEATER SCREENINGS: OCTOBER 6 & 9-13
Most in-person screenings will take place at the Smith Rafael Film Center in downtown San Rafael. We will also have two screenings at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco and one screening at the David Brower Center in Berkeley. We encourage schools within walking distance of the theaters, or with access to private or public transportation, to attend in person. Seats are limited for all screenings, so please register early! We are able to offer a limited number of buses on a first come, first served basis. Please specify your transportation needs when you register for your screenings.
ONLINE SCREENINGS: OCTOBER 16-22
All online screenings will be available for streaming after the regular festival dates this year, from October 16–22. All curriculum resources will be available indefinitely on the CAFILM Education Online platform, and on the CAFILM Education website. There are capacity limits on all films, so we encourage you to register early.
FILMMAKERS GO TO SCHOOL
For Bay Area school groups that are unable to travel to the theater, we offer this additional interactive program in which filmmakers can visit your school. Throughout the Festival, CAFILM Education staff members take filmmaker guests to school campuses to meet with students in their classrooms or auditoriums for live, in-depth discussions about their films and the art and craft of filmmaking. If you are interested in a filmmaker visit to your school, please fill out this visit request form.
