New programs support multimedia, film education
The Tribeca Film Institute will launch two new programs in New York City and Brooklyn public schools to support multimedia and film education.The Camera-to-Classroom fund will support partnerships between cultural organizations and New York City public school to implement the curriculum outlined in the Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts: The Moving Image. The organizations will plan a workshop for students to produce film, television, or animation projects. The Tribeca Teaches: Film in Motion program, already implemented in a middle school in the Bronx, will expand to two schools in Brooklyn. A collection of the films produced in this after-school program will be screened at the 2010 Tribeca Film Fest. Tribeca’s other programs including Tribeca Film Fellows and Screenings for Youth will continue in NYC public schools.
