Into Film Clubs
Find out everything you need to know about starting an Into Film Club.
All at Into Film were saddened to hear of the recent passing of Sir Ken Robinson. Sir Ken was a passionate advocate for fostering creativity in education and among children, believing that focusing only on literacy and numeracy or rigid frameworks reduces the role that creativity, imagination and other facets of education can play in young people's development and future career aspirations. Given our belief in the power of film in education, Sir Ken's views were very much aligned with our own.
We have to recognise that human flourishing is not a mechanical process; it's an organic process. And you cannot predict the outcome of human development. All you can do, like a farmer, is create the conditions under which they will begin to flourish.Sir Ken Robinson
"Sir Ken Robinson's compelling and passionate advocacy for the value of creativity in education had a profound influence on both my thinking and my career path, as it did on so many colleagues", said Into Film CEO Paul Reeve. "I had the great fortune to hear him speak a number of times (and the great misfortune on one occasion to follow him as a conference speaker). His death is a sad loss, as his inspirational vision for an education that enables the talents of every child to discovered and nurtured has never been more pertinent, or its realisation more needed".
Sir Ken spent his whole career in education, and worked as a professor at Warwick University, before gaining worldwide recognition in 2006 thanks to his TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) talk titled Do Schools Kill Creativity?, which has been viewed online more than 380 million times in 160 countries. Its influence can be felt in schools around the world. We're proud to continue advocating for the value of creativity and imagination in education - and the dynamic role film can play to help embed it in the classroom.
