Active Vista presents dynamic ways of seeing the world through the lens of humanity. Through the power of the creative form as modes of education in shaping critical thought and fostering spaces of discourse towards transformative learning, it provides access to socially relevant films to raise awareness, spark reflections and conversations, and encourage meaningful actions.
SCREENINGS. Active Vista screens films that matter. We bring these screenings in schools, communities, public theaters, and alternative spaces to bring attention to stories of human conditions.
FORUMS. Active Vista creates safe spaces for discourse among audiences. We encourage dialogue by asking questions rather than just providing answers to arrive at a shared process of seeing, understanding, and taking strategic actions that create social impact.
STUDY GUIDE. Active Vista provides learning tool kits to promote education through films. We encourage innovative and creative pedagogical approaches to teaching utilizing art, media, and popular culture.
