middle school film screening
March 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Join GFI co-founders Denise Schamens and Chelsea Budde for a community screening of “Choosing to Be a Good Friend”, which just won an Award of Excellence from The IndieFEST!
In the spirit of creating “nothing about us without us,” director Denise Schamens puts eight neurodivergent students at the center of this autism acceptance film, six of whom tell their own stories of living with autism. Three other friends and siblings offer their perspectives. All 12- to 16-year-old participants use their own language, which makes these personal accounts authentic platforms on which to build rich discussions about neurodiversity, bullying, and social emotional expression with other middle school students.
Talkback to follow with SPECIAL GUEST, film star Jake Vance and his mom Amy!
Sponsored by the Autism Society of Greater Wisconsin – Fox Valley.
Light refreshments will be provided. Register here, as seating is limited.
