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

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
