Films to change the world.
Facets Teach-Ins use film to create awareness of significant contemporary issues and provoke dialogue and discussion.
Our goal is to expand audience horizons, connect people of diverse cultures, political persuasions, socio-economic backgrounds and points-of-view, and promote discussion and learning.
Facets Teach-Ins are founded in the belief that public discourse is essential to democracy and a free society.
