October 27 @ 4:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Join Global Classroom for an evening with SIFF exploring various global films. Learn how you can use film effectively to bring the world into the classroom, and explore film as a tool for helping your students understand different countries, cultures, and perspectives; learn about the environment; or meet an important global leader. We’ll explore the possibilities with SIFF’s Educational Programs Manager Dustin Kaspar and Seattle-based documentary filmmaker Sandy Cioffi. 

$30 Registration includes 3 clock hours, light buffet, and interdisciplinary resource packet.

In addition to his education work, he is also a feature and short film programmer with the Seattle International Film Festival specializing in films for youth audiences and the cinema of Sub-Saharan Africa. Before getting involved with SIFF, Dustin was a secondary choir director at Lakewood High School and Middle School and he still keeps one foot in the musical world performing in the Seattle Opera Chorus.
