McLaren Digital Animation CPD - Teaching Resources


Year-round Filmhouse offers a diverse programme of films that will enrich all areas of the curriculum including Expressive Arts, Languages and Social Studies.  Should you wish to bring a group fro a film in our public programme we can offer at least 10% discount for groups of ten or more – please call us to discuss this and other offers for your group.




The very nature of the Filmhouse programme ensures that young adults have the chance to participate in fresh new programming ideas and festivals such as the Bio-Ethics Film Festival, French/Italian/Spanish Film Festival etc. However we also offer year-round curriculum led activity with the highlight of the programme being Edinburgh International Film Festival's exciting Media Days, which allow teachers and students to examine the entire filmic process from pre and postproduction to distribution and exhibition by seeing new films and meeting local and international film professionals.

The programme is relevant to discrete subject areas such as Media Studies, Modern Studies, History and Modern Languages but also offers a rare chance for such subjects to engage with cross-curricular themes and issues.
