Education Program

Cultural & Visual Literacy Program (CVLP)

The Cultural & Visual Literacy Program (CVLP) provides free theater screenings of outstanding films that are rarely available in Hawaii. These films are applicable to many subjects; teachers in previous years have incorporated CVLP films into classes ranging from social studies and language arts to media production and character education. Whenever possible, HIFF invites the film’s director to participate in a post-screening discussion with students.” “Students may be required to read subtitles. Schools will be responsible for their own transportation. One adult chaperone will be required for every twenty students. Open to students grades 7-12.

Guest Filmmaker Program (GFP)

Visiting filmmakers will help to enrich classes such as media production, journalism, language arts, foreign language and social studies. These visits will offer the logistical benefit of bringing speakers into classrooms rather than requiring field trips. Students will learn first-hand from successful professionals in the filmmaking/media industry. Teachers will be encouraged to plan activities that will involve students interacting with their guest speakers.
