Into Film Clubs
Find out everything you need to know about starting an Into Film Club.
We are always looking to involve more teachers in our programme, so are very excited to announce our search for twenty new Education Ambassadors.
The Into Film Education Ambassadors are a group of distinguished educators from across the UK that provide advice, insights, and feedback that help shape the Into Film offer.
This core group of film loving education experts meet at least three times a year in their respective regional groups to share opinions, best practice and engage in professional development opportunities. They are also advocates in promoting the value of film education and the Into Film offer amongst their peers and wider communities.
As part of our UK-wide search for new ambassadors, we will be holding a free online information event on Tuesday 10 May at 4.15-5pm. Inclusion and diversity are key to the work we do and we recognise that some groups are under-represented within our Education Ambassador scheme, including people from ethnic and other minority groups, those who live with a disability and applicants from the LGBTQ+ community. Applications to the Education Ambassador programme are free to all, but to ensure we encourage as diverse a group of candidates as possible, this event is specifically aimed at those who identify as members of these groups, and those who have teaching experience with young people who identify as members of these groups. Head to eventbrite to sign up and if you'd like to know more about Into Film's Equity, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion work, you can contact our Head of Programme Delivery, Anna Galer at firstname.lastname@example.org
Meanwhile, to hear directly about the programme from our current Education Ambassadors, we recently published nine teacher case studies that explore the many ways that the scheme can benefit both you and your students:
Andrew discusses how he raised his students' aspirations, why filmmaking can provide a sense of responsibility and teamwork, and the joy of screening his favourite films.
David discusses how film allows his students to see the world from a fresh perspective, his love of the Into Film Festival and attending the 'Mindfulness Through Film' Course.
Fiona explores her favourite resources, films on Into Film+ and memories from her Into Film Club.
Kerry discusses how she first became an ambassador, being inspired by her fellow practitioners and the professional development opportunities that Into Film have given.
Michele delves into the impact that creating an Into Film Club and bringing film into the classroom has had on herself, her fellow teachers and her students.
Nick discusses unlocking the key to the creative industries, the joy of collaborating with likeminded people/organisations and inspiring his students to go to film school
Sarah discusses using film with her ALN students, running training sessions for other teachers and sharing Into Film's programme with the wider community.
Simon chats about being an ambassador for over five years, collaborating with other schools/organisations and successfully embedding film in the wider curriculum.
We'll be providing more information about how to apply after the online information event on 10 May, so watch this space for then.
Our environmentally themed programme of films, resources, and exclusive content can help you initiate conversations around this crucial topic in the classroom.
