“A few people have asked me today how the course was and my response had been absolutely amazing'. It was honestly one of the most interesting and enjoyable days I've ever had.” Patrick Ball, Sir John Cass Redcoat School
“It has been a fantastic experience for all the children involved. They have been inspired by the whole process. We’re looking forward to watching their debut film!” Maria Dennis, Aldersbrook Primary, Wanstead
“Cineclub is a brilliant initiative which has developed film making by children and young people without public funding and without offering hit-and-run projects which leave both kids and teachers frustrated: it deserves to be better known and more widely used.” Cary Bazalgette, Chair, Media Educators Ass.
Cineclub’s unique membership scheme provides teachers, HLTA’s and youth workers with all the skills they need to run after school filmmaking activities with young people on a sustainable basis across the year. Cineclub set up local networks and forge partnerships with local cinemas so that students can see their work up on the big screen along with their peers.
Cineclub have an exclusive arrangement with the UK's most prestigious film school, the National Film & Television School (NFTS) The NFTS recognises the valuable work that teachers and pupils produce and have validated three different levels of accreditation to celebrate both teacher and pupil achievement.
