Filmosophy is a long-running season at Filmhouse of original and thought-provoking films and discussions. Each film is presented by a short introduction and followed by an accessible and informal post-screening discussion. Screenings are introduced and post-screening discussions hosted by James Mooney, Short Courses lecturer and course organiser at The University of Edinburgh. No previous knowledge of philosophy is required.

For more information on screenings and events or to continue the discussion, you can 'like' Filmosophy on their Facebook page or follow @film_philosophy on Twitter.


CLPL for teachers



Friday 26 October, Dynamic Earth, 2pm-5pm • 180 mins, FREE, suitable for teachers of S1-S3, Science, Physics

Come along to this FREE workshop and learn how to make short, animated films to explain core concepts in a cool and engaging way. Creative tutor Jim Stirk from Animation Jam will lead a three-hour session on using stop motion animation with S1-S3.  This hands-on experience will give teachers the practical know-how to enable pupils to understand, demonstrate and communicate key aspects of the physics curriculum by creating animated illustrations. The emphasis is on the presentation of ideas rather than their artistic ability or technical skills.  

Places are limited so early booking is advised.
