A Cine Hub is a filmmaking group in a secondary school, where learning takes place within the school day. Each Hub has a professional filmmaker attached working in an advisory and training role, and each hub produces creative work which compliments the curriculum.
The Cine Hub project, currently taking place across 20 schools across the Local Authorities of Derbyshire, Derby City, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Rutland, Leicestershire, Leicester City and Northamptonshire enables school children to engage with film production that has a social as well as educational value. Through Cine Hub, schools receive professional commissions from external agencies to produce work that is public facing, allowing children and their teachers to learn the reality of creatively responding to briefs, pitching film projects to clients and working to deadlines.
‘I was absolutely thrilled with the outcomes of Cine Hubs,
particularly in terms of student motivation, the opportunity to
access learning that was work related and the professional
development opportunities for staff. The filmmaker was fantastic
and the final product superb!’
