National Schools Film Week is produced by the charity Film Education. Their core purpose is to enrich the education of young people across the UK by providing schools with unique film and cinema based learning experiences inside and outside the classroom that are directly relevant to the curriculum, placing film at the heart of their cultural experience.
National Schools Film Week (NSFW) provides teachers and their students the opportunity to see a wide range of films at local cinemas entirely free-of-charge. Learning which takes place beyond the classroom walls plays an important role in students' social and cultural education. By providing free film screenings, along with a rich programme of educational events and a wealth of high quality, curriculum-based online resources to support learning, National Schools Film Week ensures these opportunities are available to students of all backgrounds. Learners at any level can gain immensely from the cinema experience whether they are an A Level Film Studies student or a Year 1 child seeing their first-ever big screen film.
