Film Literacy Resource Suggestion: Film Education

Welcome to the Labragirl Film Project’s weekly film literacy discussion. Every Monday morning Labragirl provides a resource, activity, or methodological discussion to help incorporate film analysis into your classroom.

Our last post was a guest blog by media literacy professional Greg Williams from the Relevant Classroom. Greg started an important conversation about the relevance of media literacy and learning.

This week we are suggesting Film Education, an organization out of the UK that promotes film literacy and film education.

Please comment below or discuss with us on 



Classroom Resource Suggestion:

This week the Labragirl Film Project recommends the educational organization Film Education.

About Film Education:

Film Education is an organization in the UK that is supported by the UK Film Industry. Their mission is to “promote and support the use of film within the curriculum.”

Film Education provides screenings, resources, and training. Although you do have to be in the UK to take advantage of some of their programming, Film Education has much to offer educators here in the States.

Why Film Education?

The UK educational system has a very  developed and integrated plan for film and its educational curriculum. As a result, there are a number of organizations dedicated to helping educators and administrators incorporate film analysis into their classrooms.

Film Education has a number of free downloads and training guides to help K-12 teachers with film literacy. We here at the Labragirl Film Project admire Film Education’s mission and believe that they produce solid materials.

Check out Film Education!
