The Chicago International Film Festival has also made online study guides available for more than 100 films that have been screened as a part of its Education Program. “At a time when students and educators are working through remote learning, we wanted to make accessible our resources built up from years of education screenings of so many inspiring and thought-provoking films, so learning can continue from home,” said Mimi Plauché, Artistic Director. These study guides are available in a searchable format, along with information about where to find the films online when available, on the Chicago International Film Festival’s website: search for (Chicago film festival education study).
