Film Club

It is clear from the interest in our Film Competition, that many of you are interested in using and working with film with your children. The Film Club looks like a great free resource to help you explore this area further in an after school or Lunch Time club.

FILMCLUB is a network of after-school film clubs. It gives young people the chance to journey through the limitless universe of film. With weekly screenings and activities, FILMCLUB is fast becoming the most popular school activity in the country.

Here is some further information about the project from NATE, its organisers:

FILM CLUB is one of the most exciting initiatives I’ve come across in years. Love film? Love FILM CLUB!
Ian McNeilly, Director, NATE

Designed to inspire, entertain, and arouse creative and curious minds, FILMCLUB provides your school with a choice of thousands of films, your licence for screening, promotional materials, and free training for teachers. We have an interactive website onto which your students can upload their own movie reviews and we also run an exciting range of events, competitions and a film industry interaction programme where we arrange for special guests to visit FILMCLUB member schools. FILM CLUB is funded by the DCSF so all of our services are completely FREE to all state funded primary and secondary schools!

“FILMCLUB is a fantastic resource for our School Club. The children love being able to choose films for their own ‘Club Cinema’. It has been a real pleasure seeing children share their enjoyment and appreciation of different films. Characters have been discussed, amusing scenes recounted, it has been astonishing the amount of positive social interaction that FILMCLUB has inspired.”

(Nichola Douglass, FILMCLUB Leader, East Borough Primary School)
