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. This year, the program has grown and we have added various high schools!
On February 14th and 15th, our local students will have the unique opportunity to travel the world and be exposed to issues that they may never have known about. We’ve compiled over 20 films to introduce students to various social and environmental topics. One of our films “Protectors of the Penguins” shows us how a formidable team of scientists are leading the way in protecting the last of the African penguins. Then we come back home to the work of Chip Thomas, aka “Jetsonorama” and his photo murals on the Navajo Nation depicting his neighbors, from sheepherders to grandmothers, and celebrating the beauty of a people whose land has been mined and poisoned, cut up and sold off in “Dignity at a Monumental Scale.’
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 who make magic happen in our schools on a daily basis!
