The Alexander Valley Film Lab is the educational arm of the Film Society.  We work with school districts, community nonprofits and youth leaders to provide programs that complement what is offered in public schools including filmmaking workshops, field trips to film festivals, free and in-school film screenings, and service learning opportunities.
