What is International Education Week?

International Education Week (IEW) is a joint initiative of the US
Department of State and the US Department of Education which aims to promote
international education and responsible participation in an increasingly
globalized world. GFI has participated in IEW since November 2007 as part of
our Education Program and our commitment to support cross-cultural education
and dialogue.

During IEW—November 16-20, 2009—GFI invites high-schools, universities,
and libraries to select three or more of the year's Global Lens films to
showcase on their campuses. Participants are encouraged to use GFI's
educational materials and resources to enhance film screenings, and create
on-campus events using Global Lens films.



How does it work?

Hosting Global Lens films during International Education Week,
November 16th–20th, is easy:


1. Choose three or more films from our 2009 series (see below for Global Lens 2009 selections).

2. Send us an email with your selections (all films are specially discounted for educators at only $150 a film!).

3. We'll send the films to you on DVD (you can screen them as many times as you like during IEW) and you will also get access to film discussion guides and other resources.

That's it!

This is a special offer just for universities, colleges, high schools and libraries, available only for International Education Week. So, email us now!

Global Lens 2009 — choose any three or more films!

The Global Film Initiative's Global Lens film series is an annual, touring film program of eight to ten narrative feature films from Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. Each film is selected for its authentic voice, strong cinematics and unique cultural perspective, and in 2009, can be seen in more than 35 theatrical locations across the United States and Canada.
