Thu 28-Fri 29 June 2018
A unique professional development opportunity for teachers of film and media to meet, learn and be inspired. The conference brings together speakers from the film, TV, online and games industries with leading teachers and researchers in stranded optional sessions, as well as offering plenaries, special events and film screenings.
Highlights of the 2017 conference included industry speakers Jay Hunt (then Chief Creative Officer, Channel 4), Paul Mayeda Berges (co-writer/producer Viceroy’s House, Bend it Like Beckham and many more!), Lia Devlin (head of marketing at Altitude Film Distribution on Moonlight and Lady Macbeth) and Mark Bridges (designer, Criterion Games on Star Wars Battlefront - Rogue One: X-Wing VR Mission). Teaching sessions included resourcing the new A Level specifications, project-based media learning, long-form foreign-language TV drama. Research sessions included Nordic Noir in the UK and Ofcom’s Study of 8-17-year-olds, ‘Children’s Media Lives’.
“Excellent conference, well organised and relevant to the new specifications.”
— Teacher delegate 2017, Shenfield
“The whole conference was superb: every session was really stimulating and thought-provoking, and it was a fantastic opportunity to talk to other media teachers.”
— Teacher delegate 2016, Redbridge
