Did you know…

We offer year-round World Arts Film Workshops! Request more information on our programs and educational workshops for schools and organizations, click here.

“We work to provide the kind of creative opportunities for students and educators that filmmaking makes possible! With filmmaking, you include not only all of the arts disciplines, but technology as well. The students’ communication skills are enhanced by the process of learning through filmmaking, an unforgettable collaborative and hands-on experience.”

“The top three skills in job market demand are teamwork, problem-solving, and interpersonal skills. Making a film is a great way to learn these skills. We have hands-on workshops for small and large group activities with resources for teachers to use in the classroom. We’re encouraging teachers and students to make films of their own and submit them to the festival.”

-Karen Sadler, Founder and Director
