How can film drive educational attainment?
- Film supports learning in a wide range of curriculum areas; it has a unique ability to bring a subject to life and facilitate deeper learning
- Film, because it brings together so many different arts and sciences and makes them real, is a valuable tool that can be used to engage children and young people with the curriculum and increase their overall motivation for learning
- Filmmaking is a collaborative activity that can be used to develop essential life skills such as communication, enterprise and problem solving
- Film provides a valuable tool for broadening the minds of pupils and enables them to access a more diverse range of cultural experiences. It opens up alternative perspectives and experiences outside of their current world view.

CAREER LONG PROFESSIONAL LEARNING
Our Film Education Practitioners are core to the delivery of the quality training on offer at Into Film based in venues and schools across Scotland. We understand the needs of educators and barriers teachers face and endeavour to tailor the sessions to support successful engagement in the Into Film offer through film literacy and filmmaking.
YOUTH ADVISORY COUNCIL AND EDUCATION AMBASSADORS
We value the views and advice our key stakeholders can offer the Into Film programme. We support two core groups, our Youth Advisory Council and Education Ambassadors who each meet three times a year.
Working collaboratively with partner organisations is really important to our work. We work with key delivery organisations and a number of cinema venues and festivals which allows us to create bespoke opportunities, activities andevents in film education for educators and young people across Scotland.
