On the 17th July, 2014, at The Criterion Theatre, Piccadilly Circus, 15 primary schools all came to see their silent film creations at the annual Film in Education Silent Film Festival.

Building on their classwork, this year's films saw Romulus and Remus, 20th century art, football, Medieval kings, exotic animals, extraterrestrials, political turmoil in the Amazon, marketing campaigns, epic battles, art theft, Shakespeare, Morpurgo, dinosaurs, and film noir. We met jazz musicians, Puck, King Arthur, and many, many more!
