Global Citizenship CPD for International Women’s Day

8 March 2017, 4.30-6pm, Filmhouse Guild Rooms, Free entry including a glass of Fairtrade wine or tea/coffee

How can films from across the globe enrich learning in the classroom? How do we respond to other people’s stories? As part of International Women's Day and Fairtrade Fortnight, Scotdec are delivering a special one-part CPD suitable for all teachers.  We will watch a short film and discuss learning in the classroom around women and girls’ rights.  Plus we are lucky enough to be joined by two coffee growers from Mzuzu Coffee, a Fairtrade cooperative in Malawi.  This CPD is delivered by Scotdec in partnership with the Scottish Fairtrade Forum. Places are limited, booking essential.


Loving Vincent

Image of Vincent Van Gogh

Thursday 8 March, 10am • FREE, 1h35min, Certificate 12A (recommended for ages 14+), Art & Design, History

Made up of 65,000 painted frames, this is the first fully oil painted feature film, that cleverly brings to life the work of the Dutch impressionist Vincent Van Gogh. Exploring the intriguing mystery surrounding his death, the film takes the form of a detective story reluctantly led by Armand, the son of a postman the artist was friends with. This is a truly unique animation that tells the story of one of the most celebrated artists in the world through his own work. TRAILER

Tickets must be booked via the Into Film eventbrite listing here.

Group Discounts

Kids at a screening

We recognise that many teachers are finding it increasingly difficult to bring groups to see films during class time, so to address this we offer 25% off tickets to public screenings at Filmhouse when bringing a group of ten or more pupils.

This discount applies to concession price tickets for pupils and full price tickets for accompanying adults – details of our ticket prices for public screenings can be found here. Tickets should be booked through our box office on 0131 228 2688.

We hope that this discount will allow school groups to attend a range of films at more suitable times. Please note that at public screenings we expect all members of the audience to respect those around them, which includes switching off mobile phones.

Projection Tours
