BolderLife, an organization fueled by various filmmakers, artists, actors and educators, believes that art should not be put on the back burner. And this week, it's turning up the heat with the BolderLife festival, which showcases various talents in the film, theater, education and arts sectors in the metro area. The main events start on December 5, but the Student Outreach Program kicks off today. See also: Five movies that will make you want to stay home for the holidays.
There will be two film sessions today at the SIE Film Center, both from 9 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. one of which one will explore the LGBTQ community and another focused on "Creative Ways Out of Conflict."
Both programs include interactive talks about the film lunch and a workshop supporting the themes of the film. The program is $25 per student; teachers and chaperones are free.
