Education Partners

Bernie Pollack master class at SMU

Education is a vital component of the Dallas Film Society’s mission and programming. In addition to Q&A sessions and panels at our annual Festival, the DFS holds an annual series of master classes with internationally known filmmakers, composers, producers and actors at our 33 local partner high schools and universities, as well as High School Roundtables and after-school programs.

In support of our mission of educating the next generation of filmmakers, short films from area universities and high schools are presented at The Dallas International Film Festival each year.
