See Hear Feel Film teaches students active viewing skills and techniques used to tell a story through film. After watching short films from around the world to spur their creativity, students learn to write with clarity and confidence, improve their storytelling skills, and become keener observers of the world around them. The curriculum consists of four units, each featuring short films, writing exercises, and creative collaboration. All students receive a JBFC Film Journal for their personal writing, drawing, and reflection. The curriculum is available in English and Spanish. Interested in volunteering?

See Hear Feel Film will undergo a curricular transition during the 2017—2018 school year as we shift from a teaching-artist model to an integrated classroom experience. Participating educators will teach the program's curriculum directly in the classroom before coming to the Media Arts Lab for a one-off field trip experience. Going forward, teachers will begin to integrate See Hear Feel Film's content into our grade-specific Image, Sound, and Story media arts curricula. If you'd like to learn more about our Image, Sound, and Story curriculum, or stay in the loop on professional development offerings for third-grade teachers, we encourage you to request information and sign up for our Schools & Teachers E-Bulletin HERE.
