Fresh Frames

Over the years, teachers have asked us to include younger students in our diverse, fun-filled, and educational programming. This year is our 20th Anniversary, and Fresh Frames has arrived! Fresh Frames is a new elementary program, which builds on all of the wonderful elements you love about Reel Focus, tailored for grade 1 to 4. Your class will attend a short film program at the Vancity Theatre. After the festival, you have the option of having a one hour animation workshop brought to your classroom. You’ll also receive a study guide which helps connect the film program to your curriculum.

Recommended for grades 1-4 (ages 5+)
