Georgia Frontiere Cinema for Students Program
2022 Whitaker St. Louis International Film Festival
Free Film Programs for St. Louis-Area Students (Grades 1-12)
Sponsored by Lucia Rosenbloom and Chip Rosenbloom
(in honor of Georgia Frontiere) and the Hawkins Foundation
with support from the Cardinals Care Foundation and the
Jane M. & Bruce P. Robert Charitable Foundation
Cinema St. Louis and the 31st Annual Whitaker St. Louis International Film Festival (SLIFF) present their 19th year of Free Educational Film Programming, the Georgia Frontiere Cinema for Students (CFS) Program.
Films are available on Nov. 3-11.
All films will be offered for In-School and Remote-Learning Presentation only.
For in-school presentations of individual films, schools will need to be able to screen from a computer using a website link and password, preferably with a digital projector.
If students are learning remotely, teachers can either share the film during class through the platform used by the school (e.g., Zoom) or provide the students with the film link and password for viewing on their own.
Unless otherwise noted, filmmakers and/or documentary subjects are potentially available for remote Q&As; inquire about availability (provide the date/time requested).
CFS offers a diverse selection of films for grades 1-12, allowing students and educators to explore world cinema as a supplement to their current subjects of study. The films can enhance each student’s education by providing exposure to various aspects of science, history, social studies, literature, language, music, and culture. The program also offers one film in French (the narrative feature “The Horizon”) and a film in Spanish (the documentary feature “Home is Somewhere Else”).
