ITVS has worked with several dynamic filmmakers to create a series of an incredibly powerful short films that can be used in the classroom setting. The great thing is that they are all free and can be accessed via the Internet by going to the following url: http://www.futurestates.tv/
The website is very interactive and has a lot of potential to engage students in the learning process. The organization is also in the process of creating a series of lessons to help show educators how to integrate the films into the core subject areas.
I hope you take a few moments to view the films. They are a great tool.
