The Durango Independent Film Festival promotes media literacy by donating books, films and other education material to schools.  This year is the first time DIFF has included school programs as part of the festivities.  The DIFF Teachers Screening Committee selected films with unique viewpoints that lend themselves to engaging and intriguing discussions.  The school programs will be shown to high school and intermediate school students in Ignacio, and to elementary and middle school students in Durango.

Two Poetry In Pictures Series films will be featured in the DIFF school program.  Imperfect Armor and Incantation will be screened at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday,  March 3rd at Ignacio Intermediate School for 3-5 graders.   On Friday, March 4th Incantation will be screened at 10:00 and 10:55 a.m. at the Durango Arts center to 3-5 graders.  I am looking forward to talking with the students about film, poetry and art. The teachers of these students have been sent the poems and asked to discuss with the students their own ideas about images that they might use to illustrate the poetry.

Incantation, A Noiseless Patient Spider and Imperfect Armor have all been used in classrooms and at children’s film festivals and children’s museums to teach children about self expression through multiple forms of art.

Imperfect Armor has been chosen as an official selection in the 2011 Portland Oregon Women’s Film Festival!  This screening is especially exciting since it is the first Oregon film festival for a film in the Poetry In Pictures Series and it is at one of my favorite local theaters, the Hollywood Theater!  Another fun fact is that this is the second festival Imperfect Armor has been in with Amy Adrion’s Shoegazer.  The two films played together in same shorts block at Indie Memphis in 2010 and Shoegazer was my favorite film of the festival.

Imperfect Armor is playing on Saturday, March 12th at 12:30 in the Animation and Experimental film showcase:
