Education and community groups
Bring your students to enjoy a morning exploring over 2,500 films and TV programmes from the BFI National Archive. Whatever subject you teach, you are bound to find some fantastic material – among moving image treasures from 1895 to the present – to stimulate and enliven your students interest.
The Mediatheque at BFI Southbank is available for school use between 10:30 and 12:30 on Tuesdays to Fridays during term time. A free session of up to two hours, for an average class size, includes a brief introduction. A facilitated session, with an introduction by a curator around a specific theme can be organised for a fee.
Please call 020 7849 4481 for enquiries and to make a school group booking.
