National film week for schoolchildren
EDUCATIONAL films will be screened at Clevedon’s Curzon cinema as part of a national initiative.
The National Schools Film Week, which will run from October 15-26, is aimed at supporting teaching by providing schools with cinema experiences that link directly to elements of the curriculum.
As a result, schools in the town are being encouraged to book tickets for the films to be put on at the Old Church Road cinema.
On October 16 it will show Secret of Kells (PG) and the session will also include an introduction by storyteller Martin Maudsley.
Eleanor’s Secret (U) will be screened on October 18 and Catfish (12A) will be shown on October 23.

Last year, pupils from Mary Elton Primary School took part in the festival when they watched The Tree of Spirits.
Deputy headteacher Sue Clifton said: “The Key Stage Two film was connected to our French curriculum and, as we are linked to a school in Tanzania, the film was perfect and provided lots of cultural stimulus.
