My name is Tom Flint and I am a moving image educator whose interests meet at the crossroads of film, education and cultural exchange. I received my undergraduate degree in Film and Media Arts from Temple University in 2004, and spent the following 13 years working in Japan as a freelance filmmaker and documentary filmmaking instructor. In 2018, I received an MA degree in Art + Design Education from the Rhode Island School of Design, where I focused on alternative approaches to moving image education. I am now based in Boston, where I run a cross-cultural youth filmmaking program called Zoom-In Zoom-Out, which brings students from different cultural backgrounds together through the act of making films. I believe that filmmaking, on top of being immensely fun and creative, can be leveraged in order to help students learn important life skills, including understanding the perspective and values of others from different cultural contexts.
