We want everyone to have access to F R E E. Please let us know if you have financial concerns. We are happy to provide community screening kits on a sliding scale.


 

Educational & Institutional Screenings

Classroom and campus screenings are an effective way to spark reflection and discussion among young people on issues like self-expression, trauma, self-empowerment, community, freedom, hope and more.

“My typically quiet and timid psychology class had a lot to talk about after viewing FREE. Young people everywhere would benefit from seeing the beauty that these artists forged through struggle. My students got it—there is always hope.”
— David Stephan, 11th grade psychology teacher, Oakland Charter School
 
 
“...FREE tells us that no matter the social or economic walls we face we can always overcome them and do some things for ourselves and make something out of ourselves.”
— M. Pablo, 11th grade
“I found the movie so empowering, educational and inspiring I chose to present it all the masters level university trainees I oversee. I encourage anyone working with children to see this movie.”
— Alicia Montgomery LCSW, Field Placement Coordinator, East Bay Agency for Children
