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.

Documentary (my favourite place)

5 week documentary filmmaking project.
Monday mornings 10:15 – 12:15.
April, 22, 29, May 6, 13 & 20.
Ages: 8+

Cost: £60.

Over this 5 week term children will try out some basic documentary techniques and then produce their own project; making a documentary about their favourite place.

The project will be led by our experienced on-site teacher, Anthony Gates. And our sessions utilise easily accessible kit, such as smartphones and tablets, so we encourage you to bring along your own devices. However we have devices available on-site if you feel this is a barrier to coming along.

As always no previous experience is necessary, all the children need to bring along is their imagination and a willingness to work together in a small group.

A Level / BTEC Study Days

 Led by a team of expert lecturers and professionals, our study days include a film screening (in our luxurious screen 1), supported with lectures and Q&As designed to support a range of BTEC / A-Level film and media students.

Days start at 10:00 and finish around 15:00. 

Tickets cost £10 per student, accompanying staff are free.

Our study days will be back in the new academic year, with a new season to reflect the new changes to the A-Level Film studies spec. If you have any requests for specific films, get in touch.
