“The Cinematheque is one of the hidden educational gems in Vancouver. I have been working with them for over ten years and they have proven to be a highlight of the year for myself and my students.”
Film Studies Teacher (Lord Byng Secondary, Vancouver)
The Cinematheque offers interactive programs that explore film and visual media in the world around us. We believe that creative filmmaking, film appreciation, and digital literacy are best approached through fun and active learning. We value diversity and inclusion, and we centre these values in the hands-on work that we do. Bringing more than twenty years of outreach experience to our practice, we offer programs to members of the public, community organizations, and primary and secondary schools, in Metro Vancouver and throughout British Columbia.
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, our Learning & Outreach team is working remotely with schools and community groups to facilitate a range of virtual workshops. You can view the full Cinematheque Learning & Outreach Covid-19 Safety Plan here.
