AiM on Tour

After the success of Africa in Motion’s touring programmes over the past few years, we are continuing this strand of the festival, and in the spirit of our Children and Youth in Africa focus, we are travelling to primary and secondary schools in Edinburgh, Fife and the Lothians in February 2012. We will screen films, talk to the children about Africa and teach them through discussions, workshops and stories from the most amazing places in Africa, about being a global citizen. In line with the curriculum for excellence, we will offer new ways of learning, with education packs for the teachers and creative ways of learning for the pupils. 

We have selected nine fantastic African films and grouped them in Film Packages for Primary and Secondary Schools. Each Film Package differs in length and age group. Consult the information below to learn about  the titles included in each Package and learn more about the films on our Films & Events page.
