First World War films

Glasgow Film is holding a CPD session for secondary teachers on 3 November to launch a new Lesson Guide on Cinema and the First World War in Scotland. The resource has been created in conjunction with the Scottish Screen Archive and Glasgow University's early cinema researchers.

You can explore Scotland's story of the war through the experiences of individual Scots by visiting the Behind the Lines exhibition at the National Library of Scotland. This major exhibition runs from 27 June to 11 November 2014.

A dedicated website, Experiences of the Great War, accompanies the exhibition and contains special learning resources for schools.
