European Children’s Film Catalogue

We are delighted to announce the presentation of the European Children's Film Catalogue for teachers as part of the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2015.

Thursday 18 June, Cineworld Fountain Park, 3.45pm-5.45pm plus reception / Free

A number of European partners have created a catalogue of European films for children, with accompanying educational materials, which will be accessible across the whole of Europe. This initiative heralds the development of a new educational distribution system (Wrap! Distribution), designed to improve the reach to young audiences. Seven films, in a variety of languages, have been procured (through Creative Scotland and Scottish Film Education) for this first year of the catalogue. These films will form the basis of a series of schools screenings, with accompanying education resources being made available to all schools.

At this event for teachers, film educators and literacy practitioners there will be a short presentation on the film catalogue, including clips, followed by a screening of German comedy Max Minsky and Me. Followed by reception.

Scott Donaldson of Creative Scotland will also present an introduction to the Film Education Framework for Europe, which has been developed by film educators from 20 European countries.

We anticipate there will be great demand for this event so please register your interest early to avoid disappointment. For further information or to make a booking please contact Jenny Leask or Amy MacKinnon at or on 0131 228 6382.
