Primary school students in London, Bristol, Leeds and Glasgow are eligible for the first time to attend educational screenings of DreamWorks Animation and Pearl Studio’s co-production ABOMINBLE and secondary school students will also get to go to Tom Harper’s THE AERONAUTS. The BFI LFF Education will also offer audiences in London, Bristol and Nottingham access to Sarah Gavron’s ROCKS for young people from 16-25 years old. The female-led cast and crew of ROCKS are expected to help deliver a day of workshops for young aspiring filmmakers in London.
In conjunction with this, there will be access to coming-of-age shorts at bfi.org.uk/lffeducation. The full programme utilises film’s power to enhance and support learning, providing inspiration in and outside of the classroom
BFI LFF Education in partnership with Into Film takes classrooms on a journey as they explore the Festival’s free school screenings, specially selected for each age group. Both screenings will be followed by a special guest Q&A (to be announced soon), simultaneously live-streamed to each venue. The screening will be accompanied by free educational resources grounding the adventures in the classroom with materials connecting the films to the national curriculum, making these screenings an invaluable resource to the pupils’ learning.
Film fans and aspiring filmmakers can make the most of the festival with Future Film Accreditation, enabling 18-25 year olds or mature students in full-time education access to more than 100 press and industry screenings, full access to the BFI LFF Education programme as well as free or discounted tickets to selected BFI LFF industry events and public screenings.
