About The RBC Big Picture Program

For the past six years, Devour! and Nourish Nova Scotia have curated this engaging series of films with schools in mind, shining the spotlight on many subjects—such as sugar, food waste, and climate change—to Nova Scotia students of all ages. Almost 3,000 school children have attended a live-in-theatre screening and have participated in learning activities post-film since its inception. In 2020, because of the global pandemic, we welcomed over 600 school children virtually by streaming our program to schools for classes to watch.

This year, Devour! will again bring the program back to the theatre and to your school virtually. The Big Picture Program will include a link to screen a film in the classroom, supported by curriculum-based materials to inform the programming and create meaningful activity-based learning opportunities for your students.
