After three years of virtual student matinee screenings, our outreach program returns to the theater!
Presently, in its 28th year, the Student Matinee Outreach Program is a fundamental educational platform that continues to channel the cultural significance of film to elementary and high school students. The program began as an event that attracted 1,000 students and has grown to nearly 5,000 Chicago area student attendees.
The Student Matinee Outreach Program provides students the opportunity to learn about the diversity of other cultures, the possibility to connect with their cultural heritage, and the prospect of meeting film directors / actors / producers to discuss viable career options in the arts.
The 2023 Student MatineeOutreach Program is supported
by a grant from the Reva & David
