sneak peek at the 12 films selected for the CSWE 2014 Film Festival that will be held at the Annual Program Meeting in Tampa in October. The annual film festival is part of CSWE’s ongoing efforts to showcase multimedia tools for social work educators that can enhance teaching and learning of social work concepts. The film topics featured in this year’s festival range from mental illness stigma and military sexual assault to LGBT issues in the African American community and older adults tackling technology. Audrey Geyer (director of Our Fires Still Burn: The Native American Experience) earned her MSW from the NYU Silver School of Social Work, and Edgar Barens (filmmaker of the Oscar-nominated Prison Terminal: The Last Days of Private Jack Hall) is a visiting media specialist at the Jane Addams Center for Social Policy and Research at University of Illinois at Chicago.
