We have something for everyone at our exciting half-term filmmaking workshops! Whether your child is interested in directing or scripting, acting or animating, our filmmaking activities will inspire and motivate film-loving children!

Tuesday 24 October
Get ready for Blast Off! We are boldly going where no future traveller has gone before in our exciting space exploration filmmaking day! Children will be diving into the dressing-up box to help them with scripting fantastical tales of teleportation and other intergalactic adventures. The day includes filming using green screen.

Wednesday 25 October
In this season of witches, full moons, otherworldly eeriness and devilish goings-on, there is filmmaking fun to be had! Come along to our workshop today where you will have opportunities galore to make scary and spooky films, be they genuinely terrifying or comically nonsensical… Children who are not keen on horror have nothing to fear at this workshop which guarantees that everyone gets out alive but offers a very creative time - complete with a dressing-up and props box that guarantees to be truly inspirational!

Thursday 26 October
Things that go bump in the night! Today is a day of animating ghostly tales, including adding special effects and scary, spooky sounds to animations - children’s imaginations can go wild in this season of Halloween and darkening nights. Not for the faint hearted… (ooh err… I’m scared!).

Please ensure your child has a packed lunch and arrives on time (we have registration before the day begins). Meet in the foyer by the box office.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact Programmer Joanna van der Meer: joanna.vandermeer@bfi.org.uk

We look forward to welcoming your child to our fun learning day.
