School Workshops

Tyneside Cinema’s Filmmaking Workshops are an ideal way to complement the work done in the classroom, shed new light on a subject and build skills and confidence - all with the support of our experienced learning team.

Our workshops engage students of all ages, explore curriculum links and develop understanding of a subject in a hands-on way, whilst having fun and building soft skills in a supportive learning environment.

Over a fun and action-packed day at our dedicated Pop-Up Film School, your students will plan and shoot a series of short films supported by our professional facilitators.

All the work produced during the day is yours to keep to support future lessons, contribute to coursework requirements or just use as a souvenir.
