Classroom resources for teachers

Teaching and learning materials for anyone teaching with, or about, film.

We support teachers in introducing students to specialist, independent and archive film by sharing knowledge, techniques and critical approaches. We do this by running courses and conferences and producing a range of teaching resources.

Research and Advocacy

We recognise the importance of evidence-based practice, and prioritise research in areas where we are recognised as leading advocates:

  • Formal education
  • Programming for young and diverse audiences
  • Tracking outcomes from film education.

We always aim to advocate film education from a position of practical knowledge, formalised as research with recognised HE partners.
