AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMMING
An after-school film and media studies program for teenagers across Philadelphia and the surrounding counties, taught in partnership by Philadelphia Film Society and award winning youth digital media organization, Big Picture Alliance.
In Cinemaniacs, teens explore the role of cinema in their lives and society through watching and analyzing a diverse selection of historical and contemporary films. Youth develop a deeper understanding of the evolution and creative process of filmmaking through screenings, discussions, creative activities, and conversations with guest filmmakers.
Teens age 14-19 are welcome, no matter grade level or school enrollment status.
