Every fall, Pickford Film Center plays host to thousands of middle school students in a one-of- a-kind educational event: Doc-ED. Through donations and grants, PFC is able to welcome Whatcom County middle schoolers to enjoy a new documentary with tickets, transportation, and popcorn all taken care of.
In conjunction with our annual Doctober festival, Doc-ED is open to every public and tribal middle school in Whatcom County during the months of October and November. Students are invited to screen new educational documentaries at the Pickford at no cost to the school. Through fundraising and donations, PFC covers the cost of tickets, transportation and popcorn for over 4,000 students in Whatcom County. Doc-ED film selections consist of age appropriate documentaries featuring the arts, sciences, and young people in cultures around the world.
