Complementing the BFI's Thriller blockbuster season this autumn, we question whether the thriller is the genre of our time with a strand curated by young people from regional programming groups around the UK (part of the BFI's Young Film Audience Network) and Into Film's own Youth Advisory Council. The films in this strand for primary ages aim to introduce and excite younger audiences into the wonders of the thriller genre. 

This resource is made up of a Powerpoint presentation with activities and teacher's notes designed to enhance your experience of visiting the festival and can be used before or after viewing a film that is part of the Thriller strand. You can cherry-pick the activities in this resource and use the ‘extend' or ‘simplify' suggestions for learners of different ages and stages.

There is an accompanying Film Literacy Activities pack available to download which contains worksheets referred to in the Powerpoint presentation.
