Tyneside Cinema Teachers Network

Our Teachers’ Network is open to all teachers and educators regardless of subject or age group, and aims to support teachers in finding the most efficient ways to include film screening and film making into their planning, both in and out of the classroom.
We hope to facilitate personal development, engagement, information sharing and positive practice through termly meetings and regular online communication around the theme of film as a valuable, accessible and adaptable teaching tool.
Our goal is to help make film more accessible, audience appropriate, enjoyable, engaging and educationally relevant.

Our next Teachers' Network event

Thursday 9 November, 18:00-19:30

Our next event on Thursday 11 January from 18:00 - 19:30 will be themed around the process of planning and delivering a short film. Our Creative Director Ian Fenton will give a presentation including the basics of planning, shot selection and setup, and we’ll leave plenty of time for questions and discussion over drinks and nibbles. No previous filmmaking experience is required!  

As ever places are FREE but places should be reserved in advance as we have limited space - please email filmschool@tynesidecinema.co.uk or call 0191 227 5508 to book your place.
