EDUCATION PROGRAMS

Teen Film Council

RFC's Teen Film Council offers students in grades 10-12 an in-depth study of cinema. This year's program runs through April 2016, with the group meeting Mondays from 4:15-6:15 p.m. Students will produce and debut short films that answers the same question: “How do minority voices inspire social change?”

The Teen Film Council’s goals are to a) explore film history; b) co-program a film series; c) attend a variety of arts offerings in the Shreveport/Bossier community; d) develop filmmaking skills; and e) learn to create, lead and speak as a team of artists. 

Sponsored by the Community Foundation of North Louisiana.


Field Trips

Multimedia talks ($5 per student): An RFC staff member presents a multimedia talk on an era, genre or theme of film history. Each talk is tailored to make connections between popular culture and film, history and film, Broadway and film, and even literature and film. The talk lasts 60 to 90 minutes. Talks include “The Movie Musical,” “Film Pioneers: Innovations of Sound and Color in Early Cinema,” and “Fairy Tales on Film.”

The Novel Experience ($10 per student): During this 90-minute interactive video-making workshop, students adapt a novel’s chapter into a short film. Led by an RFC staff member, students compare and contrast literary and cinematic terms, study how a narrative or dramatic story gets adapted into a one-page screenplay, collaboratively produce a short film and review the final edited short film.

Buffet lunch may be added to the field trip for $9 a person.
