About

The Partnership for Age Friendly Communities invites community members to join a test project to ascertain if film can change attitudes of ageism. A team is being formed to explore audience members' biases and attitudes toward aging through viewing a film, then discussing positive and negative images of aging. The project would show one commercially distributed film each month for three months to community residents, each followed by a discussion of audience experiences of and attitudes towards ageism. Audience attitudes would be surveyed before and after the film and discussion. Members of the team would pick the films, find a discussion leader, find the venue, market it to the community, create the survey and analyze the results. People with marketing experience, cultural sensitivity to aging, facilitation skills, and/or grant writing experience are encouraged to put these skills to use as members of this team.
