The Media Literacy Workshop (MLW) is the flagship program of Out of The Box. We developed original modules for three target audiences: teachers, college students, and high school students.
Our modules for teachers are designed to help them reinforce their skills to be able to teach MIL effectively and confidently. Meanwhile, the modules for both college and high school students involve specialized topics designed to support their MIL education. All modules can be customized into half-day or whole-day workshops.

The Spoof Ads Competition aims to hone the critical thinking skills and creativity of high school students through deconstructing and “spoofing” selected advertisements.
The Competition is open to teams of 3 high school students and is divided into 2 parts: Design Workshop and Spoof Ads Production.
We invite advertising professionals to conduct a half-day design workshop. After which, students will choose an advertisement to spoof based on a theme. The Top 3 Spoof Ads will win cash prizes and will be exhibited in OOTB’s future events.
The PeliKolab Film Fellowship is a special mentoring project that aims to connect high school students with filmmakers and critics to develop their film literacy skills and production techniques.

After which, Filmmaking participants will pitch their film projects and the Top 7 will receive seed funding to be able to produce their projects. The Film Criticism participants will then write critical essays on one of the 7 films.
The short films will be screened and will receive special awards.
