Already unlocked? for access

To accommodate evolving public health recommendations regarding COVID-19, we are adopting a hybrid virtual-and-in-person festival model for 2021. VIRTUAL, IN-PERSON, and HYBRID (virtual AND in-person) Festival Passes are available here.

⚠️ Please note: For the sake of public safety, NWFF will require both face-coverings and proof of vaccination from in-person audiences. We reserve the option to shift the festival to virtual-only on short notice.

In Reflecting On Anti-Bias Education, eight West Coast pre-school teachers invite us into their classrooms to demonstrate how inclusive educational models encourage a strong sense of self and sociocultural identity in children. Interwoven throughout the documentary are classroom scenes and candid interviews with teachers that outline how the methodology has impacted their own identities, while inviting the audience to think about how they can integrate anti-bias education into their daily lives.
