Mad Hatter's Film School

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

During the Easter holidays the BFI is offering a chance for 9-13 year olds to encounter the surreal world of Alice...

A choice of workshops and screenings good enough to entice anyone to leap into the rabbit hole! The workshops will consist of different activities including: composing soundtracks to the 1903 silent version, designing, making and animating puppets a la Jan Svankmajer and, most exciting of all, recreating the dizzying changes in scale that feature in the novel and all the films - with a custom built mini set and green screen technology.

Each afternoon they'll screen a classic Alice film: Svankmajer's dark animated tale, the 1950s Disney take, Jonathan Miller's BBC version, and of course the new retelling by Tim Burton.

  • 10am-4pm
  • £15 per child per day
