The SXSW EDU Film program highlights poignant narratives and documentaries focusing on all aspects of education. With films tackling social impacts on domestic and international learning, peering into classrooms, and exploring the journey to becoming an educator, the film program presents an entertaining and compelling addition to SXSW EDU. Many screenings conclude with a Q&A featuring the filmmakers, providing attendees an opportunity to connect with the film on a personal level.
