15 March - 21 March
This resource, for teachers of 11-16 year olds, focuses on films adapted from or inspired by Shakespeare, and provides activity outlines to support students to explore the conventions of romantic comedies, working critically with film and creating their own silent films within the genre. Within this pack are three activities which culminate in an engaging and creative practical filmmaking task. This resource was written by a Teach First teacher, for the BFI's Shakespeare on Film season, www.bfi.org.uk/shakespeare-on-film and features silent Shakespeare adaptations of Twelfth Night (1911) and Taming of the Shrew (1923) from BFI Player and a stimulating BFI interview with screenwriter Tess Morris on 'How to write a romcom'.
Connection to the internet is required to play some of the videos.
We love to hear how educators have used our resources.Contact us
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.
