Structured like a seminar, the fellowship includes a pre-festival session, a handful of required readings, three post-festival discussion sessions, a final presentation/capstone (in February), and a list of required festival films. Fellows will be required to create and share a teaching object (assignment activity, mini curricular module, lesson plan, etc) as their capstone activity of the program.
Educators selected for the program will receive a festival pass (retail price: $500) and complimentary copies of required readings/books. The fellowship should take approximately 30-40 hours to complete between October and February, with the bulk of that time spent viewing films at the festival (October 18-November 1).
This is the fourth year of our fellowship. We are thrilled to announce that this year's Fellows will have the option to earn credit through UWM's Certificate for Arts Integration and Learning program! Rockstar alum fellows Heather Hanson and Joe Duellman will return to facilitate our post-festival sessions.
This fellowship is open to educators working with middle and high school aged students in out-of-school time and traditional classroom settings (and everything in between!) as well as to pre-service educators hoping to gain specific expertise in the use of film in their future practice.
