Facets Teaching Resources

Facets' commitment to quality film and educational programming for youth and educators began with the creation of the Chicago International Children's Film Festival in 1983. Since then, Facets has been a pioneer in creating youth programming that uses thoughtful, stimulating films to inspire critical thinking, spark the imagination, and expand the worldviews of the next generation.

Facets is proud to offer its media education services to provide film programs, workshops, and other media education to Chicago-based schools. Our curriculum not only pushes youth to engage with and explore a new medium, but it challenges them to find creative solutions to real world problems through teamwork.
