Youth Screening Series 2013-2014 Kicks Off With ‘A Place At The Table’

We’re pleased to announce the films taking part in the Tribeca Youth Screening Series® during the fall 2013-2014 school year. 

This program is free-of-charge and open to all NYC public middle school and high school groups. Registration is first come, first serve. The films, screening location and times as well as how to register are listed here.

This fall, TFI's Education Department launches a new film series for youth, educators and community with a focus on food justice, a universal issue impacting people and communities across the US. The series will spotlight four documentary films that address the issues currently impacting the food system from the local to the national level. The goal of the series is to educate and empower young people about the state of the current food system so that they can make better-informed decisions about what they consume, and learn how they can become active players in the growing movement to create a more equitable and sustainable food system. Each screening will be followed by a Q&A with filmmakers, activists, and local urban farmers to engage students in deeper dialogue about the issues. The series will feature a panel, kickoff screening for educators, and a culminating screening for students.

We kick off the season on September 23 with A Place At The Table. Fifty million people in the US—including one in four children—don’t always know where their next meal is coming from. In this documentary, directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush examine the issue of hunger in America through the lens of three people struggling with food insecurity.

If you are an educator, teaching artist, or student interested in attending either or both screenings, please email Flonia Telegrafi, Education Engagement Coordinator at ftelegrafi@tribecafilminstitute.org.
