Over five weekdays, elementary school students from across Metro Vancouver attend a 75-minute hands-on filmmaking workshop accompanied by a 75-minute program of short films at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre (RHCC).
Feature Focus promotes a more in depth development of media literacy and critical thinking skills than Reel Focus - while broadening cultural awareness and global understanding. These weekday matinee screenings of thought-provoking films are followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers, producers and actors for discussion about content, message and aesthetic. Viewing guides are provided to all participating teachers, offering useful questions, activities and additional resources for integrating each program's content into the classroom.
Please note: We encourage you to check your calendar for conflicts prior to registration. R2R requires a minimum of two weeks notice in order to cancel your registeration and offer a full refund. This applies to all school groups.
