The Santa Barbara International Film Festival's (SBIFF) educational program, Mike's Field Trip to the Movies, showed local school kids a special screening of Frozen 2.
On Tuesday approximately 2,000 students from 14 schools, most designated as Title 1 schools, filled the Arlington Theater for the highly anticipated animated sequel.
Named for late nature cinematographer and local activist Mike deGruy, Mike’s Field Trip to the Movies uses filmmaking to stimulate creative, confident, and culturally aware thinkers. The program is offered to 4,000 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students from throughout Santa Barbara County, and SBIFF provides free transportation to students from Title I schools.
