This resource highlights the discoveries made from our inclusion project by sharing the most popular and impactful films. We have also included more films that complement the themes included in this resource. The resource provides tips for organising an Into Film club, suggestions for film reviewing, and activity ideas to enhance and support film screenings. 

There are activities suitable for all abilities. We hope that this resource provides a good starting point for you and your cohort, enabling you to choose the sections that will work best for you and for them. The film list begins with film choices that are suitable for all, especially those that are younger or less able. It moves onto more challenging choices for older groups throughout the resource.

For each film included in this resource, the following activities are provided:
• Discussion questions, which you can ask your group before and after watching the film. These questions should spark debate around new subject matter, interest in other cultures and cover various elements of film known as the 3Cs and 3Ss: character, colour, camera, sound, setting and story.
• A post-screening activity.
• A filmmaking activity.
• A more challenging extension activity.
• Where relevant, worksheets are provided at the end of this resource to print and photocopy for students to work on.

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.
