FLIC goes on tour! First stop? Cambridgeshire!

Posted on 20 January 2012

Are you interested in using film to support curriculum learning? Would you like to hear about the benefits of using film in the classroom from teachers and students who have made their own films?

In early 2012, First Light in the Classroom (FLIC) will be going on tour around the UK and working with a number of host schools to deliver an event that focuses on the benefits of filmmaking in schools.
FLIC delivers professional filmmaking workshops in schools that support curriculum learning, enhance cross-curricular skills, improve motivation, behaviour and attainment and enable pupils to create their own films.

As part of the tour, Sawston Village College in Cambridgeshire will be hosting an event for the Eastern region on 1 February 2012. Sawston Village College have a lot of experience in creating their own films with pupils being the driving force behind the technical and creative aspects of the filmmaking process.

The event will include an introduction to FLIC, a talk from Sawston Village College teachers and pupils about their experiences of making films, screening of a selection of short films made by schools, a Q&A session and networking. This is a great opportunity to see how you could benefit from using film in your classroom and to make new contacts with people that have done it.

When: Wednesday 1 February 2012
Where: Sawston Cinema, Marven Centre, New Road, Sawston, CB22 3BP.
Time: 4pm- 6.30pm (including refreshments and networking)

All attendees will receive copies of films and complementary learning resource packs, which can be used to support various curriculum subjects. If you would like to attend, please register your interest with Lesley Morgan. Email lmorgan@sawstonvc.org or tel 01223 712825.
