Office of American Spaces Movie Kits

The Office of American Spaces has developed a series of Movie Programming Kits tailored for American Spaces. These are provided below in easily printable PDF format. If you would like an editable version of any or all of the kits, have questions about them or would like to suggest ideas for additional topics, please post your request, question or thoughts in the Community Forum, or email the Office of American Spaces at

Movie Kits contain discussion questions and vocabulary lists. The movies must be purchased separately. Please consult the license agreement with the Motion Picture Licensing Corporation to screen the suggested films.

The Education and Cultural Affairs bureau’s Cultural Programs Division also has compiled a list of film titles covered by the MPLC agreement and organized into various categories, genres and themes. This list is for internal use only and is not for public distribution.
