Help the world get TEACHED!
We have come such a long way. With the help of so many—artists & filmmakers, donors & in-kind supporters—we have completed the first trilogy of TEACHED short films, or TEACHED Volume I; interviewed national figures like performer John Legend and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa; and already been featured in some of the most respected film festivals in the country.
Now we need your help getting TEACHED out to the world. Here's what you can do:
#1 Host a Screening
TEACHED Vol. I is now available on DVD & Blu-Ray for community-based screenings. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for our new How-to Guide (a How-to video is coming soon!), information about public screening fees and process, and assistance planning a great event.
We can't do it without you; it's as simple as that. Please consider making your 2012 gift to TEACHED today; all contributions are tax-deductible thanks to our fiscal sponsor, the esteemed International Documentary Association.

We recently screened TEACHED Vol. I at two fabulous Northern California events: first, the Sonoma International Film Festival with special guest speakers Arun Ramanathan, Executive Director of The Education Trust-West, and Malcolm McClain, a beloved local "Teacher of the Year."
Arun (pictured above) gave a thought-provoking talk about the state of education in California, while Malcolm provided some "on-the-ground" perspective. Thank you both, so much, and thanks to SIFF for including us in your wonderful festival.
We also enjoyed a very special screening at the lovely Cameo Cinema in St. Helena, one of the few remaining independent theaters in the country. The evening featured Cindy Smith and Jeanne Kerr, esteemed members of the St. Helena School Board; Producer/Director Kelly Amis; and Amber Pierce Marsh, a teacher featured in The Blame Game: Teachers Speak Out.
