With new arrivals in every area of the UK, running a film club can be used as a fantastic way of aiding integration and providing a fun, safe and inclusive learning environment. By running a UK-wide inclusion project kindly funded by the  Paul Hamlyn Foundation, we have researched best practice for Into Film clubs with members newly arrived into the UK.These films will support work being done towards fostering good relations in your organisation and contribute towards young people's Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development. They will also get young people thinking about change and tolerance, whilst providing  an engaging social activity.

Your Film Club, Your Way encourages you as teachers, educators or parents to run a school film club in whatever way works best for you and your school. You can run your club as a breakfast, lunch or after-school club. However, a film club does not always have to be an extra-curricular activity, and Your Film Club, Your Way resources support you to work with film and filmmaking as an innovative way to deliver the curriculum during lesson time.

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.
