Media Live! Educational Film Studies & Media Event

Media Live! is a fantastic opportunity to bring the curriculum to life and show your students the many different paths a career in media could take. From Journalism to Film and from TV to New Media this event will inspire your students and allow them to see work from specialists in their field. The three quality speakers cover the fundamentals of the Media Studies curriculum at KS4 and KS5, perfectly complementing classroom learning. Students can also get involved in this truly interactive event by submitting a competition entry to be showcased live to their fellow students on the day. The best entry is awarded a prize by our panel of expert judges. 

Our educational events packages at Disneyland Paris are the best value you’ll find anywhere.

We include group travel insurance as part of our package and unlike other tour operators, we won’t charge any supplements for regional pick-ups when you travel by coach.

Also held on the same day is Psychology Live! making this the ideal event to bring a mixed group of students from across the curriculum!
