Teen Screen, Film Pittsburgh’s free educational field-trip program for middle and high school students, consists of off-campus field trips for school groups including a film presentation, teaching materials, and pre- and post-screening discussions, and possible school visits. Teen Screen also offers virtual programming in which teachers share films at school or with at-home learners and conduct pre- and post-film discussions virtually. Film topics include the Holocaust, genocide, social justice, human rights, and STEM, among others.
