In the video below, we look at how participating in a filmmaking project can be hugely beneficial to the whole school community.

At Into Film, we work with a wide number of filmmakers to deliver filmmaking projects in schools. The many schools with whom we’ve worked tell us that filmmaking actively engages students and helps them to retain knowledge. It also encourages critical and creative thinking, as well as developing a wide range of skills such as team working, problem solving, enterprise, and time and project management.

In this video, we look at how St. George’s Beneficial Church of England Primary School in Portsmouth found participating in a filmmaking project with Millstream Productions hugely beneficial to the whole school community.

Do you think the quality of the final film is the main way to gauge a projects success?
