For Teachers

Reel Fun Film Festival’s films address many contemporary social issues and provide a wealth of information relevant to themes in the Alberta Curriculum Education guidelines. All films are listed with a grade recommendation intended to be used as a guide for teachers when selecting screenings for students.  These recommendations are based on our experience and knowledge and through consultation with educators.  We recognize however, that children respond in varied ways and therefore we leave the final decision to you.

We will be having morning and afternoon screenings for schools and the public during the day at the Eau Claire Cineplex.

Film making workshops will also be available during Education week – so you could watch a film in the AM and make a film in the PM or vice versa. OR…you could just make a film…or watch a film. Space is limited in the film making workshops so book as soon as you can!

Film Making Workshop Details:
  • There are 2 workshops available:
    • Make a Movie Trailer Workshop

  • Workshop costs are $12 / student
