What is claimed to be the world’s “largest film festival for schools” is coming to Falmouth.
As part of National Schools Film Week the Phoenix Cinema in Berkeley Vale will be showing films that can be incorporated into the curriculum. These include Brave and Dr Seuss’s The Lorax, which are both suitable for children with sensory impairments. Other films will include the Railway Children, Mirror Mirror, Ponyo and Ice Age: Continental Drift, which all contain subjects and themes that run alongside lessons back at school.
Robin Hill, assistant manager of the Phoenix Cinema, said: “Some children can be quite daunted by experiencing the ‘big screen’ for the first time. By going to the cinema for the first time with friends and teachers it can be less daunting for them.”
Films will be shown every day at the Phoenix from Monday, October 22 until Friday, October 26.
