Our programme ranges from free screenings and creative workshops at our Film Fundays to activity days and film clubs held after school.

We run a filmmaking and screening programme for young people during the school holidays. We also provide bespoke filmmaking opportunities for other cultural or education organisations which can take place at BFI Southbank or via outreach provision.

Please contact our Family Learning Programmer for more details about our activities for children and families.
