Cineclub trains professional filmmakers to help teachers and pupils understand the whole filmmaking process and to widen their appreciation of contemporary, classic and cult film. We offer schools (primary and secondary) and FE colleges a range of training programmes aimed at developing filmmaking skills using the latest digital technology. These include one or two-term programmes, summer schools and one-off masterclasses in production techniques.
Our workshop programmes are designed to complement the national curriculum and to offer real tangible learning outcomes that aim to inspire and motivate pupils and teachers. By training teachers in the filmmaking process and by encouraging talented young filmmakers in school to share good practice with other pupils we aim to encourage schools to use film as an integral part of the school day.
Participating schools become part of the Cineclub Network, which allows them to come together to share their films and their experiences of filmmaking and film watching. Cineclub enables children and young people to communicate ideas, challenge views and form opinions through the medium of digital film production and have their work publicly screened at cinema venues across London and the South East.
