SYNOPSIS:

Teaching through film. RiverRun recognizes the unique and critical role arts education plays in reaching students in and outside the classroom. Through our free education program, Films With Class, we present screenings of carefully selected films during the school year and at the Festival each spring. In these two shorts blocks, we chose short films that will partner with the current curriculum to teach students through film.
