Language & Creativity (Primary)
Activities to support engagement, debate and reflection for primary titles in the Language & Creativity strand of the Into Film Festival.
Language and creativity are all around us: language, in all its diverse forms, impacts almost every moment of our lives, both positively and negatively. Alongside films in English, this strand includes titles in modern foreign and indigenous languages, allowing young people to see these languages in action and develop a greater feel for their nuances.
The films also include characters expressing themselves through the written word, the performing arts, play, and the online world.
