Anim18 is a year-long celebration of animation taking place across the whole of the UK, led by the Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff. Whilst the main focus of the celebration is on British animation, Into Film is pleased to be working in partnership with Chapter to tell the international animation story through the blockbuster, heritage and archive films in this strand. 

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 Anim18 Connections: An Animated World 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.

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.
