On November 6th, students from Metro’s Community Based Transition classrooms, as well as the students from the Project Search classroom of Davidson County, attended a special showing of the Sprout Film Festival at the Belcourt Theater. Students watched short films that focused on young people with disabilities. The films include people with disabilities, ranging from the actors, crew members or subject of the film shorts.
Allison Inman, the director of Education and Engagement at Belcourt, hosted the festival along with Kate Deitzer, CBTP Lead Teacher and Transition Coach. The Interviewer, Mr. Twister and For the Love of Dogs were favorite among the crowd. Mrs. Inman also held a Q & A session to allow students to comment or ask questions about the films. Short videos by TennesseeWorks.org also spotlighted some of the students and teachers in the crowd, People interesting in seeing these films, including The Interviewer and Mr. Twister can be view at the following link: http://sproutflix.org
