Five docs have been programmed, each relevant to our world today offering a variety of content that will inform, engage, and inspire with the expectation of considerable class discussion to follow.
As the films are selected from the Hot Docs Festival, there can be some mature content and language, but nothing gratuitous, and all relevant to the integrity of the story. Content that is important and relevant for youth to view, and for you to discuss. The window for viewing is short and each film will only be available for a 24-hour viewing period allowing for nil to little preview time. This is not new as when we have offered the Festival In-Cinema films (pre covid), there was no preview available, you would bring students to enjoy and discuss. For another year, this experience will be online, and we hope you will trust us with content.
The five films will be in competition for the Scotiabank Docs For Schools Student Choice Award. Students will vote on each film viewed and the winning filmmaker will receive $5,000.
Important: Due to the short period to view each film with limiting preview time, we do not encourage online home school viewing unless you have been able to preview.
