2017 Silent Film Festival

Fesrival 2017 (1)

Hundreds of exceptionally talented primary school children joined us on the 13th July, 2017, at The Criterion, Piccadilly Circus to watch the films that they made at the annual London Primary School Silent Film Festival. Presented by Film in Education’s very own Jade Beard and Justin Allder!

Based on their curriculum, the children made an eclectic mix of films, from romance to adventure, sci-fi to political, action to comedy. We were introduced to robbers, environmentalists, wild animals, Roman girl-power, vengeful Gods, capitalists, aliens, kindness, virtual reality, slapstick Mummies, the Second World War, fairy-tales, and super heroes. So much excitement for a Thursday afternoon!
