Spaces and equipment
Film education can take place in many different contexts. This section suggests how to use and adapt existing spaces and equipment for film education, and the things you need to consider when establishing new spaces and facilities. We look at equipment for film viewing – from basic classroom projectors to specialised spaces – and equipment for filmmaking, including still cameras, video camcorders, editing computers and software.
Film education should provide opportunities for children to view, discuss and explore films, and to actively engage in filmmaking. These activities can all take place within a normal classroom, but there are some advantages in using dedicated spaces, particularly for specialist courses.
