Cinema Culturas 8/01/23
This competition seeks to encourage and enhance our K-12 students’ 4 C’s of 21st Century Skills: Critical Thinking, Creativity, Collaboration and Communication. Cinema Culturas expands on this learning model by incorporating two additional C’s in its educational program: Culture and Community. By providing fun and educational forums for all students to participate in, and having local communities come together via a digital platform, students’ storytelling skills are nurtured and promoted through the short films they create. Cinema Culturas invites all elementary, middle, and high school students to participate in its Storytelling, Music and Film Student Competition “Regeneration: how does adversity help you grow”
