Red Chemistry, Inc. is a Miami based non-profit arts education organization offering educational filmmaking and screening programs that promote literacy, cultural awareness, critical thinking, and develop an appreciation for European filmmaking.
Red Chemistry, Inc. is dedicated to promote independent film makers and increase appreciation for European cinema through programming that attracts diverse communities and engage future generations of film lovers.
Red Chemistry uses the idea of Cinemagique which is a unique multidisciplinary, cross-cultural educational film program offered to students from third to twelfth grades in Miami-Dade public and charter schools. Students have the opportunity to view and critique European short films and learn short film production.
The Red Chemistry Inc. project enhances the quality of education by accompanying the standard school curricula with a film program that might not otherwise be available to students. Cinamagique's approach integrates the traditional academic subjects with a film project or film criticism. This interactive learning is enjoyable and engages the interests of the student's. It is project oriented which improves the students' grasp of academic subjects as well as communication and critical skills.
