Film Education
Following the closure of the charity, Film Education in April 2013 we have received hundreds of requests for the library of resources developed by Film Education over 26 years to continue to be available online for teachers and students in the UK. We are pleased to announce that, thanks to the support of Cinema First and Film Distributors' Association, this website and the library of online resources will continue to be accessible. Unfortunately, other than the Thinking Film series, no copies of disc based resources are available to order. A limited number of Thinking Film discs are available and can be obtained by completing the respective online order form, while stocks last. No new content will be added to this website.
