2018 Student & Family Programs

Student Program

The Student Program remains one of the Flagstaff Mountain Film Festival’s core endeavors, fulfilling our educational mission of connecting local students to films that entertain, educate, and inspire while highlighting important social, cultural, political, and environmental issues.

Zain’s Summer: From Refugee to American Boy

On February 14th and 15th, enjoy great films while supporting local students. We’ve comprised 13 films from around the world to introduce students to various social and environmental issues. One of our films “Down to Earth” shows us how one first grade teacher is redefining an immersive educational experience by recording lectures while on an arctic expedition in Iceland to show her students a place they may never get to visit. Then we come back home and see the sunny side of the refugee experience in “Zain’s Summer” as we follow Zain and his siblings during a six-week summer program to prepare them for the start of school.   

FMFF is once again offering the Traveling Student Program to address the needs of our local schools. Sinagua Middle School will host films on-campus, therefore providing a unique educational and cinematic experience to their students.

From the FMFF Board a heartfelt thank you is extended to ALL educators throughout Flagstaff that make magic happen in our schools on a daily basis!

Family Program

Dazzle your senses with kaleidoscopes, drums, and the movement of water! Join The Wonder Factory in collaboration with Bookmans Entertainment Exchange for a weekend of discovery and youth film. Build your own kaleidoscope or drum and test out your knowledge of water and its power to filter through different mediums. Dress up as your favorite storybook character as we’ll have a photo booth with fun props. The perfect photo op awaits you! We’re also looking for awesome future musicians to jam out with us. We’ll have a musical instrument petting zoo with all the essentials to make cool tunes.

The Wonder Factory is a science, engineering, art, and technology center in Flagstaff, AZ providing hands-on, interactive experiences for the young and young at heart. Come out to the Flagstaff Film Festival to learn more! See schedule for details.
