Film Education and the Four Cs: Critical, Cultural, Creative…and Christmas!

Tuesday 30 November | 4.30pm-5.30pm

With the festive season almost here, you might be looking for some new fun activities to engage your classes and get them into the Christmas spirit! In this session Screen Scotland’s Film Education Team, Scott Donaldson and Gail Robertson, will be joined by Jonathan Charles, animator and film education practitioner of D Fie Foe. Scott and Gail will outline some critical and cultural activities using the 3Cs for a short Christmassy film and Jonathan will demonstrate how to make a Christmas-themed animation.

This session is ideal for practitioners new to film education, but also for those with a bit more experience who are looking for some Christmas inspiration!
