Study Guide:With the registration and purchase of a school group festival pass, teachers will receive the study guides for the 2 short films programs. Steps to teach an animation workshop in the classroom will also be included.

A note about subtitles: Most films at the R2R Festival will either have English closed captioning or subtitles. We encourage young readers to follow English subtitles as best they can, and gain exposure to other languages, regardless of comprehension level. Research has shown that foreign language exposure sparks language learning.
