Inspired by our creative theme ‘Culture for a Changing City’ young people will explore the natural world in Tower Hamlets; its green spaces, animal life and environmental issues, all of its joys and challenges, making films that share their ideas, skills and knowledge about the world around them.

In partnership with Tower Hamlets Arts and Music Service (THAMES) and Into Film, the programme involves 12 participating Tower Hamlets schools with a FREE programme of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for teachers, film education screenings and in-school sessions with filmmakers facilitated by Chocolate Films.

Pupils’ films also have an opportunity to be screened at our Primary Schools Film Festival here at Rich Mix in summer 2020 as part of ‘Green Tower Hamlets’.

One Pic ‘n’ Mix school will take part in Takeover Day where they will explore ‘Behind the Scenes and Screens at Rich Mix’, as pupils takeover Rich Mix supporting the Box Office, Cinema Technicians, Marketing and Front of House teams.
