Free film screenings for schools

Tue, February 13, 2018

Flowerfield Arts Centre and Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre will celebrate International Women’s Day with two free film screenings for schools.

In partnership with INTO Film, ‘A Silent Voice’ will take place on Thursday 8th March at Flowerfield Arts Centre. Described as an intricate account of teenage politics, this stunning Japanese animation explores tough themes of bullying and peer pressure. Perfect for secondary school audiences, the story also explores themes of friendship, courage and compassion in young people. The performance takes place at 10am and is rated certificate 12.

Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre will screen ‘Ethel and Ernest’ on Friday 9th March at 10am for school children aged 7+. This wonderful animation is adapted from a novel by The Snowman creator Raymond Briggs. Telling the story of his parents’ relationship from the 1920s to the 1970s, it follows their experience of two World Wars and beyond as they witness incredible shifts in society. Rated PG, the film provides a fascinating, warm and funny insight into the 20th century.  Limited tickets are remaining for this screening.
