EIGHT ANIMATED FEATURE FILMS — EIGHT CORNERS OF THE WORLD.
Are you an Orange County student who is currently in Grades 7th – 12th? If so, we invite you to register for our free 2021 World of Animation program! This FREE eight-title Film-viewing + Discussion program will take place Tuesday afternoons at 3:30pm, from Tuesday, October 5th through Tuesday, November 23rd!
With generous support from State Street Foundation, we are inviting 100 students to join us for our inaugural World of Animation program, conceived to provide younger audiences with an opportunity to experience, free of charge, eight acclaimed feature-length animated films from eight different countries. Screenings will be held in-person, and each film will be followed by a presentation and conversation with special guests in the fields of cinema, animation, and education. The films presented will represent works from Brazil, Belgium, France, Ireland, Japan, South Korea, Spain, and the US. Our objectives are to encourage younger audiences to seek out and embrace international, independent, non-mainstream cinema; to apply critical, analytical, and comparative thinking to their filmgoing experience; and to become accustomed to experience watching feature films in foreign languages with subtitles. Not to mention, to share some great works of art with future leaders in our community!
- Students must be: 1) Currently enrolled in an Orange County-based school; and 2) Currently attending Grades 7th – 12th (Junior High through High School).
- Students must make every effort to attend all eight sessions, which will take place every Tuesday at 3:30pm starting October 5th, and ending November 23rd.
