I just announced a special event over at the CUE website. I’m posting the short version here as well, because I’m hoping to get the word out quickly:
CUEtoYOU is proud to announce a special partnership with the American Film Institute (AFI) and Cal State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB). CUEtoYOU will host the AFI Screen Education workshop at the CSUMB Language Lab on Saturday September 22nd. In this hands-on workshop, teachers and administrators of all grade levels and subjects will learn how to use filmmaking as a tool to engage student learning. Through experiential lessons, participants will learn to shoot, plan, edit, and critique film and make connection to their curricula. The workshop is lead by Frank Guttler, Associate Director of the American Film Institute K-12 Screen Education Center and lead professional development trainer for the last 5 years.
The workshop runs from 9:00am to 5:00pm on September 22nd. Coffee and refreshments will be served at 8:30am and a working lunch will also be included in the workshop. The cost to CUE members is only $155. Non-members merely pay an additional $40 for a full year of CUE membership. (Bring your own digital video camera and tape if possible.)
Please pass this on to anyone you know who might be interested or benefit from it!
