Illinois Public Media has joined with the Independent Television Service (ITVS) to bring you Community Cinema, a series of monthly screenings (September - June) of independent documentaries shown at the Champaign Public Library. Each hour-long film is viewed and then discussed with the audience and a community panel of people with knowledge of the topic locally. These screenings are free and open to the public.
Illinois Public Media is helping students and teachers at the Stratton Leadership & MicroSociety Magnet School in Champaign create, maintain and staff their 21st Century Digital Media Center. Their Center allows them to run their own video production studio, anchor newscasts, write and videotape stories, edit video and publish content on their website, strattonsociety.org.
