HIFF JR. Educational Initiatives

student-filmmaker-workshop-2016-2Since our inception, educational outreach to youth has been one of the hallmarks of the Hamptons International Film Festival. From summer filmmaking camps to year-round curriculum initiatives in East End schools, HIFF. Jr.—led by HIFF Board member, educator, and arts advocate Linda Biscardi Fuller—has exposed thousands of students to a world of diverse realities, while helping them realize that film is an accessible medium for making their voices heard.

Our expansion of our educational initiatives is ongoing, with the aim of reaching every East End student, to enhance both individual cultural awareness and the collective character of our communities and larger world. Opportunities exist to underwrite the establishment of each of the programs into additional East Schools. Contact us if you are interested in getting involved!
