The Film Education Website
Following the closure of the charity, Film Education in April 2013 we have received hundreds of requests for the library of resources developed by Film Education over 26 years to continue to be available online for teachers and students in the UK.
We are pleased to announce that, thanks to the support of Cinema First and Film Distributors' Association, this website and the library of online resources will continue to be accessible.
Unfortunately, other than the Thinking Film series, no copies of disc based resources are available to order.
A limited number of Thinking Film discs are available and can be obtained by completing the respective online order form, while stocks last.
No new content will be added to this website.
Ian Wall and James Lennox, former key staff at Film Education, have established a new organisation, The Film Space, that will focus on producing moving image related, curriculum-linked resources as well as providing training and advice on the use of moving image media in the classroom.
Plans are currently being developed by Film Nation UK for a new programme to encourage film learning among 5-19 year olds incorporating watching, making and understanding films in one accessible offer. This includes the National Youth Film Festival, Film Club and FirstLight in a scheme funded by the BFI and other partners.
Our free resources cover a wide range of curriculum areas and include film clips, Teachers' Notes and a range of activities.
We run a series of free events and screenings for school groups at local cinemas across the UK, including National Schools Film Week.
Press clippings, updates and links to articles on our wide range of activities.
We would like to say a big thank you to all of the thousands of teachers that have worked with us.
