Network Goes To CineSchool 1Mar2013
CineSchool is an annual film festival run by Film Education for school groups throughout February and March. The festival incorporates film screenings held across the UK, supported by in-cinema educational talks and Q & As, alongside film-related resources for use in the classroom.
This year, two classics of children’s cinema from the Network library are part of the screening programme: The Red Balloon and White Mane. Both directed by the award-winning visual poet Albert Lamorisse, these wonderful films remain timeless, and fit perfectly into the CineSchool philosophy. The Festival screens films that tell stories from across Europe so that the adventurous nature of the programming matches the demand from teachers to have their students exposed to European cinema.
All screenings take place during the school day and are offered free of charge to UK schools.
