Global Citizenship Teacher's CPD for International Women's Day

8 March 2017, 4.30-6pm, Filmhouse Guild Rooms, Free entry including a glass of Fairtrade wine or tea/coffee

How can films from across the globe enrich learning in the classroom? How do we respond to other people’s stories? As part of International Women's Day and Fairtrade Fortnight, Scotdec are delivering a special one-part CPD suitable for all teachers.  We will watch a short film and discuss learning in the classroom around women and girls’ rights.  Plus we are lucky enough to be joined by two coffee growers from Mzuzu Coffee, a Fairtrade cooperative in Malawi.  This CPD is delivered by Scotdec in partnership with the Scottish Fairtrade Forum. Places are limited, booking essential.

Group Discounts

Primary screening at Filmhouse

We recognise that many teachers are finding it increasingly difficult  to bring groups to see films during class time, so to address this we offer 25% off tickets to public screenings at Filmhouse when bringing a group of ten or more pupils.

This discount applies to concession price tickets for pupils and full  price tickets for accompanying adults – details of our ticket prices for public screenings can be found here. Tickets should be booked through our box office on 0131 228 2688.

We hope that this discount will allow school groups to attend a range of  films at more suitable times. Please note that at public screenings we  expect all members of the audience to respect those around them, which  includes switching off mobile phones.

Projection Tours

Come and learn how cinema works, with a tour of our projection box and a  screening of short animations from the London International Animation  Festival. Tours cost £75 for a class of up to 33 pupils, and are  suitable for P4-S2.

Please note that, although we strive to make Filmhouse as accessible as  possible, this tour is of a non-public area of the building which is up  two flights of stairs, with no lift.
