Facets offers a variety of screening programs for all grade levels throughout the year, which we can screen at Facets or bring to screen at your location. Choose from one of our pre-existing programs listed below, or speak with us to develop a customized program to suit the needs of your classroom or school.
All films are official selections from the Chicago International Children's Film Festival, and all programs include an introduction and post-screening discussion led by one of our trained media educators. Curriculum aligned with Common Core Standards is also provided electronically to teachers prior to the day of screening.
If scheduling an in-school screening, please note that there are specific technical requirements (detailed below).
