PennGSE Program

The SDP-PennGSE Film Program is connected to a graduate level course series called Ethnographic Filmmaking (EDUC 586.401) Parts 1 and 2 offered by Penn’s Graduate School of Education. The course in which Penn students are taught ethnographic research methods and filmmaking. Teams of PennGSE Film students visit selected Philadelphia high school to get to know the students, teachers and school community and, just as importantly, for them to get to know us. Over the Spring semester, our students, ideally in collaboration with high school students, produce a short film (research, write, shoot, edit and deliver) by end of school year. The students decide what film they want to make supported by the PennGSE Films teaching team. Program is – Sponsored by the CIO and the Districts Deputy of Research is directly involved with this and other Penn GSE initiatives.

[QUOTE: “Our students can’t stop talking about their experience. We at Dobbins loved being a part of the SDP-PennGSE Film Festival. Our mentor Justin, was incredible. The positive impact in creating this project has already happened in my class, and as a teacher I am grateful. My student, who was the lead character in our project, sent me a wonderful text this weekend thanking me for the experience of making a movie, and now he wants to act more. That happened because he saw himself on screen and went through the experience of making a movie. That’s the beauty of your program.  – Anis Taylor, Dobbins High School”]
