ENVIRONMENTAL YOUTH FORUM
May 2-4, 2018
CFI is excited to join its long-running Environmental Youth Forum (EYF) with this year’s DocLands, bringing our educational audiences and our festival audiences together as one community, where they can engage with a variety of shared films and viewpoints while cultivating the activists and documentary film lovers of the future. As part of its connection with DocLands, EYF will now feature several DocLands titles, providing students with access to more high-quality films and filmmakers than ever before.
Now in its tenth year, EYF was created to address the growing—and ongoing—need for a dynamic, engaging approach to teaching environmental awareness and activism to a diverse youth population. A unique educational experience that is both enlightening and entertaining, EYF emphasizes innovations and solutions through three intensive days of screenings, discussions, workshops and exhibits for students in grades 1–12.
Reservations for school groups are available on a first-come, first-served basis, but EYF is FREE for all Bay Area schools, and allows teachers to create customized programs for their students.
