Online Film Lessons

It is easy to engage in film education on the basis of our free online lessons. Encourage your pupils to look at the images they see even better. Will you opt for a monthly short film lesson from our This is Film programme? Or a single lesson based on an art film? We focus on film from several perspectives, from video art to editing. Simply select the lesson that suits the class you teach.

This is Film

How can you enhance the experience of film using several camera angles? What is the effect of sound on our viewing experience? And how can you use editing to tell a story?


The series of lessons This is Film encourages pupils to discover the influence of cinematic design on the experience of film. A new lesson is offered free of charge every month.
