School children in Northern Ireland are set to benefit from the innovative FILMCLUB programme when the initiative launches across the country following a successful pilot scheme. Pupils in primary, secondary and special schools in receipt of Extended School Funding can now broaden their cultural understanding and improve their literacy by exploring the world of films through the education charity, which officially launched today in Belfast, with the help of a famous face from the movies!

Silver screen icon ‘King Kong’ made a special appearance at Belfast City Hall, along with representatives from FILMCLUB to celebrate the launch, which was also attended by teachers and young people from local schools. Attendees watched a special film screening in Cinemobile – a magnificent, state-of-the-art 100-seater mobile cinema – and heard about the benefits of belonging to the scheme which helps schools set up and run weekly film clubs encouraging young people, age 5 – 18, to watch, discuss and review a diverse range of films from past and present, and from around the world.
