Wales has a long and rich film history. This resource showcases and celebrates the breadth of film created in Wales or featuring Welsh talent, as well as supporting teachers in engaging with film as a core learning tool. The activities are designed to fit the National Curriculum for Wales and to encourage educators and young people to explore Wales through film, focusing specifically on three central Welsh themes: Landscape, Myth, Legend and Nature, and Culture and Heritage. From classic cinema through to modern day representations of Wales on film, the resource explores Welsh history, language, industry, culture and society.

How to use this resource

The resource features questions and activities based around each film, as well as thematic activities that explore aspects of Landscape, Myth, Legend and Nature, Culture and Heritage. In addition, the resources use clips provided in the accompanying PowerPoint presentation. Activities create engagement with film through watching, discussing, analysing and filmmaking.

Updating our resources

We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.

What our educators say

"Our SATs results this year were great, both progress and attainment in reading and writing have improved compared with last year, which we feel has been largely as a result of integrating the Into Film strategies."
