Filmosophy is a long-running season at Filmhouse of original and thought-provoking films and discussions. Each film is presented by a short introduction and followed by an accessible and informal post-screening discussion. Screenings are introduced and post-screening discussions hosted by James Mooney, Short Courses lecturer and course organiser at The University of Edinburgh. No previous knowledge of philosophy is required.

CLPL for teachers

Raising Literacy Through Film CLPL with IntoFilm

Friday 10 May from 2.00pm – 4.00pm
120min • £15 • Suitable for all teachers, especially Literacy & English, Arts and Technologies • Filmhouse Guild Rooms

This session will introduce you to a series of tools including the 3Cs (character, colour, camera) and 3Ss (story, setting, sound). These tools aim to build your ability to help your students contextualise and decode film. Key literacy skills include inference, deduction and analysis – which can be applied to film and other texts. Each activity is designed to help build on your students’ comprehension, analytical and writing skills and includes an opportunity for curriculum-focused filmmaking and writing.

All materials for this session were created in collaboration with the BFI, Bradford Media Literacy, the Northern Ireland Creative Learning Centres, NATE and our network of specialist practitioners.

Bookings can be done via IntoFilm here. For more information please contact IntoFilm at
