LitFilmFest is a whole school community event in celebration of traditional literacy, digital skills, creativity and global issues. This year, LitFilmFest won the COBIS award for their work at St George’s International Primary School in Luxembourg. It also won the EDUCATE award from the Institute Of Education for its research on improving academic progress in literacy with 7-11 year olds.
Using our content and project resources, students and their teachers research, write, perform and produce their own films on global issues such as politics, social change and the environment. These are then presented to your whole school community as part of a prestigious film premiere-style screening event which showcases your school in the most positive light possible:
- Academically ahead of the curve
- Digitally ambitious
- Preparing students as future leaders
- Socially responsible
- Encouraging creativity
The LitFilmFest approach to teaching and learning was shown to improve academic progress by 3.75 times the national average rate. As well as improving literacy skills, this spectacular event develops the creative, digital, public speaking and team working skills that your student need for success in later life.
The LitFilmFest team also work with your teaching staff to demonstrate how to combine traditional teaching with digital skills. Teachers learn a variety of different ways to bring the written word to life for the digital age including working with images, audio and video.
Over the last 4 years, we have built up an impressive list of partners who work with us on our content and delivery across a range of genres. These include:
- British Film Institute
- Houses Of Parliament
- Michael Rosen
- The Week Junior
Once you make the decision to host a LitFilmFest, we’re with you every step of the way. The journey begins with a school visit from our team who work with both staff and students to get them up to speed.
When all classes have completed the projects, our team returns to help you film, polish and perfect your films. This ensures that parents are amazed by the written work, creativity, depth of understanding and performances of your students at your LitFilmFest event.
