Be the Change

Addressing social activism and citizenship education the theme Be the Change explores how film not only entertains but can change our perspective to inspire positive social change. The films are composed to present the opportunity to address social activism by looking at what it means to be the leader of change. Thematic material will stimulate awareness of inclusion, what it means to take others' needs into consideration, and to understand the price of success by comparing the group vs. individual. The focus is to open up conversations and ask questions to the solutions any one of us can be part of in a world that is inclusive of everyone. Students will understand that no matter what age they may be they can make a difference in the world by speaking out and speaking up for what is right.
