learning RESOURCES

Free learning resources for pre- and post-screening classroom activities are available to download below. The resources have been developed by teachers to respond to the experiences and outcomes of Curriculum for Excellence.

Glasgow Film Learning's resource archive represents films previously screened at GFT and GYFF. Most of these titles are available to buy on DVD for use in the classroom. Unfortunately, a few of these films will have to be imported from abroad as they have not been released on DVD in the UK. Glasgow Film Learning recommends that you try online retailers to buy these titles.
