Adventurous and inspiring play

StFF believes in learning through adventure and that storytelling can inspire people, providing lifelong skills.  This company’s work has been brought to our attention, so check out Fafu’s play stuff here.

We work really hard on making products that inspire children to find their own stories and ideas rather than following ours. We want the products to have endless possibilities and not have an obvious purpose so that the child will feel a bit puzzled and inspired to create and collaborate with other children.

Village at the End of the World

Founded in 2004, UK film distributer, Dogwoof, has released award-winning independent films from around the world.  Its main focus is documentaries that, in some way, inspire creativity, thought and change – about communities, individuals, the environment or social issues.

Dogwoof has asked us to draw your attention to Village at the End of the World, which is in cinemas now.   This is a new film about a remote village in Greenland where thinning ice sheets are interrupting their traditional way of life.

Picturehouse operates 21 Picturehouse cinemas and has chosen the film for their Picturehouse Docs Discover Tuesday event for June – so on Tuesday 4th June, the film will screen at every Picturehouse cinema. For more information click here.

To help you make sure you catch this remarkable and beautifully shot film by UK Director, Sarah Gavron, Dogwoof is giving away 2 tickets to each screening – email patrick@dogwoof.com to enter the draw.

Good luck.
