Welcome to Screening Shorts
The use of moving image as a non-traditional literacy text across Curriculum for Excellence offers engaging and exciting opportunities to get learners speaking, listening, reading, writing and creating. Short films are ideal as they are complete, easily accessible and good for repeated viewing. On this website, you will find a collection of superb downloadable films (fiction, animation and factual) suitable for primary and secondary school audiences.
As well as these resources, we aim to be a definitive guide to the core principles and concepts of moving image education practice. On Screening Shorts, you will find a range of hands-on, in-depth film tutorials covering the core concepts of moving image literacy for teachers to explore and use in the classroom. Through Glow, you can join a growing community of practice and professional development too.
