Most Likely To Succeed film coming to Victoria

Watch the film everyone is talking about

Most Likely To Succeed is the best film ever done on the topic of school — both its past and its future. The film inspires its audiences with a sense of purpose and possibility, and will bring Victoria’s school communities together in re-imagining what our students and teachers are capable of doing. After seeing this film, you’ll never look at school the same way again.

This August at the Cinecenta, the Summit at the Pier presents, a film that will change the way you look at education.

You’ve likely heard that we have challenges with our education system. Or that student engagement plummets from 80% in elementary school to less than 40% in high school. Or that students lose more than 90% of their creative capacity during their school years. Or that our teachers are trying hard to support students the best way they can.

We’re not alone. In fact, every country’s education systems are changing, and looking for ways to re-engage their kids. You may have read that our school system was created in 1893. Then you probably recognize that what youth needed then is much different that what life expects from them today.

Most Likely to Succeed (MLTS) offers an inspiring look at what students and teachers are capable of – if we have the vision and courage to transform our schools. Directed by acclaimed documentarian Greg Whiteley, the film has been an official selection of two dozen of the world’s top film festivals.

Their goal is to help schools – all schools – move forward by re-imaging their purpose, and creating learning experiences that prepare kids for life in the 21st Century.

We loved the film and it’s inspiring message so much, we had to share it with our Victoria communities! We look forward to having to come by, watch the film, and even discuss education and today’s youth with our panel of advocates and Summit co-founders.
