MSPFilm Education: nextwave
Through a variety of initiatives for school-age youth, Nextwave aims to build youth media literacy and critical analysis skills, connect young artists with filmmakers of note, and put a spotlight on youth filmmaking.
Bring your K-12 class or student group to a screening year-round or during MSPIFF. Filmmakers and other guest speakers provide context and encourage critical thought in post-film discussions.
