Inspiring learning for a fairer future

Developing global citizenship through film

Tuesday, 08 November 2016 13:59

At the end of October, Highland One World delivered a CPD for primary teachers at Eden Court on using short films within global citizenship education. HOW worked in partnership with Take One Action, the UK's leading social justice film festival, on the training session.   Teachers shared ideas and developed skills in using short films to explore issues such as borders, bullying and diversity with learners.

Some of these shorts will be shown as part of the free screening for primary schools on Friday 18 November - part of the Inverness Take One Action Film festival.  The festival is coming to Inverness from 18-20 November and will showcase the most acclaimed international cinema focussing on social and environmental justice. Films being screened include Sonita, a teenage Afghan rapper's journey to empowerment, and At Home in the World, an intimate and poignant look at a school for refugee children in Denmark. The full programme of films on offer is available here.

The Take One Action website also has many short films available to watch for free in their film directory.  You can filter according to age of audience and length of film to find a collection of high quality short films, from documentaries to dramas to animations, to share with learners. The relevant themes of each film are highlighted, from UK poverty to women's empowerment to food.
