This event has been developed to assist in the teaching of French by focusing on film as an original and creative approach to learning more about French culture and accessing a wider range of vocabulary in a fun and lively atmosphere. A variety of carefully selected short foreign language films from the new BFI DVD, Cine-minis, will form the basis of the event plus clips from suitable feature films. Pupils will be introduced to films from other cultures, and there will be a variety of interactive activities to build on pupils’ understanding and vocabulary. The afternoon includes an introduced screening of a suitable French film. A teachers’ resource pack will be available with plenty of follow-on activities.
