Outreach and Community Projects

Outreach and Community Projects


QFT Learning co-ordinates a wide range of formal and information education and outreach film events throughout the year, accessible to all. Within the main QFT programme there are many events which enable audiences to engage further and creatively with cultural cinema. QFT hosts film talks, film director Q & A’s, film workshops or discussions.

QFT Learning co-ordinates a year round schools programme of educational screening, designed to support the national curriculum from KS1- AS & A2 level. The Schools Out programme offering free screenings to schools is supported by Northern Ireland Screen Education and Film Education.

Additionally, QFT co-ordinates community outreach projects, and has just received a grant from the Belfast City Council to work with four local youth groups to programme a new project called Take Over Film Festival. In the last year nearly 6000 young people under 18 attended QFT Learning events.

The art@queen's education and outreach initiative began in 2001 with the vision of delivering a workshop programme to art students from non-selecting Belfast schools. Since then the initiative has grown considerably and now encompasses many interested groups, opening up a wide range of exciting outreach opportunities. Pupils from primary, secondary and special needs schools, as well as other groups of adults and children, work with the Education and Outreach Officer and professional artists on an extensive range of projects.
