Each fall CITY Center for Collaborative Learning brings a national education documentary to the Tucson community and invites local experts to reflect and respond to the issues and questions raised by the film.
For the 2019 Fall Film Screening, CITY invited Tucson to join us on Wednesday, 23 October 2019 at our downtown campus for a screening of Paper Tigers, a film that follows a year in the life of six students at an alternative high school that has radically changed its approach to supporting students who have experience severe psychological trauma, becoming a promising model for how to break the cycles of poverty, violence and disease that affect families.
- In October 2018, the featured film was ‘Code: Debugging the Gender Gap.’
- In October 2017 we offered a free screening of ‘Dream Big: Engineering Our World.’
- October 2016 we hosted the Tucson premiere of ‘Most Likely to Succeed.’
Our goal is to bring films to the Tucson community that explore innovations, thorny issues, and compelling topics in the field of education. The event includes a panel discussion to engage the audience in a discussion of the film’s relevance and potential impact in our local environment.
