Synopsis

Let the Film Buff Challenge take your pupils on a magic carpet ride through different curriculum-linked themes, genres, countries, and film mediums to widen their horizons and broaden their knowledge of a world they may never have experienced before.

Our curated Film Buff collections bring together ten unique short films. They have been developed to incorporate two age-appropriate categories (7-11 and 11-14) with various film styles available in each section. As pupils watch and review films, they can gain rewards and certificates for their progress.

Download the Film Buff Challenge resource for more information and to track your pupils' progress.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
