The TFI Screening Series is a media literacy program and yearlong presentation of films that serve New York City youth and educators with access to free, relevant programming. Available in classrooms or in theatre venues, each screening is followed by a discussion, a workshop, or Q&A talkbacks with the filmmakers to enhance students' academic engagement and foster ciritical thinking skills. Offering documentary and narrative films, the TFI Screening Series provides an interactive experience where students participate in thematic discussions, interact with filmmakers, and engage with each other through post-screening activities. Screenings are available on a first come, first served basis and are free of charge.

 

GENDER, IDENTITY, AND SPORTS 

FALL 2019 TFI SCREENING SERIES

Selections from the TFI/ESPN Short Documentary Program and the TFI IF/Then Short Documentary Program

Sports can define and tranform how we think about ourselves and our place in the world. The shorts in this series GENDER, IDENTITY, AND SPORTS take a look at the challenges and celebrations of four exemplary individuals invovled in sports in which they are underrepresented - or from which they are excluded - because of their gender. From sumo wrestling in Japan to boxing in the Lower Brule Sioux Reservation, from the politics of being a transgender athlete to the healing aspects of equine therapy, these stories examine the way these champions have faced obstacles and defined themselves.
