Activities & screenings for schools, colleges and home educators

Activities tailored to your students

Want to watch a film linked to a module or class topic? Reward your group at the end of term with a screening? Want to showcase your group’s own productions, on the big screen? Ask about our private education screenings. 

Want to inspire the next generation of filmmakers or spice up a familiar topic, get your students more engaged with a topic? We can hold small filmmaking workshops at your school or activity group with a screening at Depot of the results. Bespoke to your topic and level of skill.

We can offer a combination of any of the above; you choose the topic, the film and we’ll put together an tailor-made event for you.



For any questions, queries or ideas for projects, please contact our education manager, Anthony via email: [email protected]
