The Slamdance Film Festival

The Slamdance Film Festival is a showcase for raw and innovative filmmaking that lives and bleeds by its mantra: By Filmmakers, For Filmmakers. Slamdance has created a track record for showcasing breakthrough artists that is beyond dispute. Filmmakers who first presented their work at the festival are now amongst the biggest names in the entertainment industry. Alumni who have shown their early short films and debut features at Slamdance include Bong Joon Ho (Parasite), Rian Johnson (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Ari Aster (Midsommar), Gina Prince-Bythewood (The Old Guard), The Russo Brothers (Avengers: Endgame), Lena Dunham (Girls), Jon M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians), Lynn Shelton (Little Fires Everywhere) and Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk).

Slamdance takes place annually in the beautiful ski resort town of Park City, Utah, down the street and at the same time as Sundance. Slamdance offers an intimate community experience in which audience members, filmmakers, festival programmers and industry professionals all mingle in the same hallways and sit side by side in screening rooms to discover the next generation of cinema talent.

Slamdance 2022 will combine an in-person festival in Park City, Utah and—building upon the success of our 2021 online edition—an accessible virtual experience for everyone to enjoy. Films officially selected for the 2022 Slamdance Film Festival may be presented in Park City, online, or both — depending on emerging circumstances. While US guidelines pertaining to the COVID-19 pandemic continue to loosen, Slamdance is still committed to the safety of our filmmakers and audiences as our top priority. We will continue to monitor and adapt as circumstances evolve to provide a safe, supportive, and engaging film festival experience for all attendees.

Making Inferences with a Movie Short

Using movies, short films or animations in the classroom is extremely engaging for students Új múlt teljes film magyarul. I use short films from Pixar Studios to teach a variety of skills and strategies throughout the year. One of my favorites is “One Man Band” from Pixar. I use it to teach inferencing but you could use it to teach a variety of skills including character comparisons, setting and even plot structure.

You might want to watch the video before you check out the rest of the post. This video can be used for so many different skills! So worth your time!

Students love the video and it is relatively easy for them to form some inferences throughout. While they are watching, I stop the video three different times to allow them to form inferences and state the evidence that supports that inference.

The free download The Addams Family 2 film also includes a generic graphic organizer for making inferences. Check it out by clicking here. Do you you use any movie shorts in your classroom? I am always looking for new ones to use with my students.

I recommend Eleven kór (2021) online teljes film giving them the recording sheet and allowing them time to look over the questions before you have them watch the video. This will allow time for students to write their answers and back up with evidence. If it works best for your class, show the video two times. The first time you watch, have students record their inferences. On the second watch, have students record their evidence.

The options are truly endless with this short. Do a quick search on YouTube for A feleségem története teljes film other movie shorts to see how you can use them in your classroom to support your instruction. Students love them and they definitely are engaged!
