Animation film and workshop for Primary (Spanish film festival October 2014)

Venue: Edinburgh College of Art
Contact: Marian A.Aréchaga

Event Date: 08/10/2014 10:00 - 12:00

Edinburgh University, in collaboration with the Spanish Consulate, is going to launch the first Edinburgh Spanish Film Festival (ESFF) from 8th - 12th October this year.

We are currently planning our programme and would like to include an animation film particularly suitable for primary school pupils (P6 and P7), if there is an audience.

The Spanish Consulate would like to know if your school will support them by bringing children to see an animation film at the Filmhouse on the morning of the 8th of October around 10 am.

The film will be followed by a workshop at the ECA (Edinburgh School of Arts) – around  30 children  for the workshop. The children will learn how to make an animation film using the same props and materials that students of Animation use. Each group will produce a short film of 1 or 2 minutes. The children will need to work on ideas prior to going to the workshop so that the work produced is worthy and well prepared.

The cost for the film and the workshop will be £5 per child. The cost for the film only will be £2.60 per child, teachers free.

This is a great opportunity for the children to experience watching a film with subtitles and also to create their own film.

The Spanish Consulate need to know now in order to get the ball rolling. Could you therefore please email Marian A.Aréchaga asap by answering the following questions:

Yes, this is a good idea and we will bring around  ..........pupils.
