Invitation: Education Event consultation meeting

Posted on by admin


John Forrest, Festival Director, calls all educators in Manchester to contribute ideas, suggestions and opinions at the meeting and via email

The invitation

We would be delighted if you would join us for a small informal meeting of influential people in education to help us create an effective SCHOOLS EDUCATION EVENT with the INSIGHT FILM FESTIVAL in Spring 2014.

Our first ‘Education Day’ was held in March 2013 and we want to build on its success. We will listen to the advice and ideas of people who, like you, work regularly with students and young people.

The date, time and venue

We work in association with the Department of Screen Studies at the University of Manchester and have arranged a meeting to be held on Thursday 12 September at the Martin Harris Centre, Bridgeford Street, Manchester, M13 9PL.

This will be the only consultation of its kind. This is the only invitation we will make.

The agenda

At the meeting we will be discussing the launch of filmmaking competitions in connection with the event that could involve your students. We will share a short presentation and film viewing, followed by an open discussion about creating a relevant Education Day event that falls within the remit of the Insight Festival objectives:

The Insight Film Festival exists to encourage filmmakers throughout the world to make films about ‘faith’. It creates events and spaces where such films can be displayed, discussed and celebrated. It welcomes participants from all faith backgrounds and none, and focuses particularly on young filmmakers. In doing so it wants to make positive contributions to understanding and respect. It is grown in significance internationally, but it aims to ensure that the Education Programme keeps a relevant presence in the Manchester area.

Summary of the invitation details

The meeting will take place at the Martin Harris Centre on Thursday 12 September 2013 between 6.30-8.30 p.m. Refreshments will be provided


I do hope you can come – and I’d love to hear your response to our Education Day proposals. Please contact me via email if you would like to attend and/or have an opinion you would like to share.
