Pricing and Payment
After the JBFC receives a completed Registration Form, an invoice will be generated and sent to the
person identified as the school contact. Payment must be made by check, in one installment. Checks
may be made payable to Jacob Burns Film Center, Inc. No cash is accepted.
BOCES component districts may submit program expenses to the Arts in Education service to
receive state aid for student programs as well as teacher training. This process is handled directly
through BOCES. Program fees cover less than 25% of the program costs. The remainder is made possible by support from membership, corporations, foundations, and individuals.
If you must cancel, please do so two weeks in advance to receive a 100% refund. With any less advance notice, 80% of the total program cost will be refunded.
Transportation Reimbursement and Financial Assistance: The JBFC will waive the participation fee and reimburse all transportation costs for schools in which a minimum of 35% of students qualify for a free or reduced lunch through the National School Lunch Program (according to the New York State Department of Education). We encourage all schools, regardless of financial circumstances, to participate in our programs and we will do our best to meet your needs.
Inclement Weather and Make-Up Classes
Sessions cancelled due to weather will be made up at the mutual convenience of the JBFC and the participating school or organization.
As a way of expressing our gratitude, educators will be given a Media Arts Lab ID, which grants those who are not already JBFC members the ability to purchase tickets at the member price (at the box office only) for the duration of their participation. Nonmember educators enrolled in a one-time program will be given passes to two JBFC events at the member price. If you aren’t already a JBFC member, join now to start enjoying a variety of benefits.

Schools are expected to provide one adult (teacher, parent, or other chaperone) for every 15 students.
We suggest bringing one adult for every nine students with special needs.
