Film Curriculum Toolkit for Educators
The Power of Creating & Analyzing Film in the 21st Century
The Bureau of Creative Works is a digital distribution platform that funds and premieres an original short film each month, directly supporting some of the best independent filmmakers working today.
The Bureau is unique in that we do not obtain our films through distributors (which represent a very narrow slice of the film community), instead, we fully-fund the production of original works by a diverse group of filmmakers, filmmakers that retain 100% rights to their own work. We are a support structure, a distribution platform, and a strong advocate for redefining the rules of filmmaking and audience engagement.
Our Educational Toolkit provides early and exclusive access to a growing library of short films by established filmmakers as well as promising newcomers. Our library is diverse with genres ranging from documentary, drama, interactive, horror and experimental. Our films are fantastic case studies of cinematic low-budget filmmaking, with a focus on community building. We work directly with each filmmaker, forming relationships which allows us and our educators open access in ways that are unheard of on any other platform.
