SCHOOL SCREENINGS AND UPCOMING EVENTS

BELMONT FILMHOUSE EDUCATION SCREENINGS - FEBRUARY

Happy 2022! 🎉🥳

As we went into the holiday break, we made the tough decision to cancel our planned in-person school screenings for January and February due to the rising cases of Omicron. We hope to reschedule some of these in June. 

We do, however, have something very special planned for February: we have partnered with Time For Inclusive Education to offer a FREE film education pack that can be used in the classroom to celebrate LGBT History Month.

To discuss future bookings please contact education@belmontfilmhouse.com.  We are happy to answer your questions and help you plan for a successful trip. Our COVID risk assessment is available upon request. 

Keep an eye out on our website and teacher newsletter for future announcements. Not on our mailing list? Email us at education@belmontfilmhouse.com to receive our monthly newsletter. 

LGBT HISTORY MONTH

We have partnered with  Time For Inclusive Education to offer schools the chance of watching two films, Battle of the Sexes and Pride, and use them as media learning tools to develop pupils’ understanding of prejudice, discrimination and the experience of LGBT people in the past and present. 

Each film will be accompanied by a short recorded introduction, full lesson plans, including relevant Es, Os and Benchmarks in PDF format. The first 20 schools to register for this project will receive DVD copies for the two films. All remaining schools will receive details on how to access the films online.

The 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs became the most-watched televised sports event of all time. Trapped in the media glare, King and Riggs were on opposites sides of a binary argument, but off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. With her husband urging her to fight for equal pay, the private King was also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality, while Riggs gambled his legacy and reputation in a bid to relive the glories of his past.

Based on a true story, Pride follows a group of UK gay activists who work to help miners during their lengthy strike of the National Union of Mineworkers in the summer of 1984.  The film celebrates activism, intersectionality and demonstrates the power of allyship.
