Mobile Cinema Lab

SeriesFest's Mobile Cinema Lab brings film and television education programs into schools across Colorado. The program features full cinema packages, with instruction by professional filmmakers and educators, and a fully developed curriculum in writing, production, post-production and more. While the education mission of SeriesFest is to inspire the voice inside every student, the Mobile Cinema Lab brings real-world film and episodic storytelling technology to all schools in an effort to break down the barriers that limit access for students in under-resourced communities.
