Education Screenings

MKE Film : Education : Youth Education

Do you want to take your students on a field trip to the movies? Would you like your students to encounter films that raise the bar for youth multicultural programming in Milwaukee? Join us for the Milwaukee Film Festival’s Education Screenings—a collection of inspiring, beautiful, and thoughtful films that use the power of cinema to engage your students while reinforcing curricular goals.

Education screenings engage such curricular areas as follows:

  • Language Arts: Reading, Writing, Storytelling, and Critical Thinking Skills
  • Social Studies: Global Cultures, Heritage, and Cross-cultural Understanding
  • Fine Arts: Media Literacy, Filmmaking, Music, and Animation
  • Foreign Languages: Communication, Culture, and Geography

Education Screenings take place at the Landmark Oriental Theatre on Milwaukee’s East Side and include a brief post-screening discussion to kickstart student’s responses to the films. Tickets are only $1 per student! We offer screenings for the following grade ranges: 1–3, 4–6, 6–8 and 9–12. Participating teachers receive curriculum packets that contain a variety of activities and indicate the Common Core State Standards the screenings and activities meet.
