CLPL at Filmhouse
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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 £90 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.
