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.
