Supporting film in school curricula and promoting moving image culture for young audiences.
IFI Education has the national remit for film education in Ireland. We aim to provide access to a wide range of film and moving image among diverse audiences, and to facilitate critical and active engagement. We work with teachers and students, contribute to education policy and development, and promote the case for media literacy in national and international education debate.
With a bi-annual programme of film screenings, workshops, resources, teacher-training and related events, we engage with over 15,000 children and young people around the country throughout the school year.
The programme for the 2014 Autumn/Winter Schools programme is now live. For booking and more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org (if you experience any difficulties when emailing, please call Dee Quinlan on 01 679 5744 to book).
