    Help my grandson has studied the march of the penguins and I can't see it on the list of films. Will he still be able to use this film . I appreciate any feedback.

    It's on the list of suggested documentaries. He has probably studied another film too, one of the prescribed ones. I'm not an English teacher, but perhaps one could answer whether he will be OK for the exam.

    The Night of the Hunter Charles Laughton
    Bend it Like Beckham Gurinder Chadha
    Son of Rambow Garth Jennings
    Life is Beautiful Roberto Benigni
    Whale Rider Niki Caro
    Beasts of the Southern Wild Benh Zeitlin
    In America Jim Sheridan
    E.T. Stephen Spielberg
    Spirited Away Hayao Miyazaki
    School of Rock Richard Linklater

    Some Suggested Documentaries
    Spellbound Jeffrey Blitz
    March of the Penguins Luc Jacquet
    Senna Asif Kapadia
    Only When I Dance Beadie Finzi

    Some Suggested Short Films

    Thank you, feeling a little better knowing that. No they didn't study another film only the one I said, but he has watched ET & SCHOOL OF ROCK so hopefully he'll be ok. English would be one of his better subjects.

    Films won't be coming (very unlikely).

    EDIT: Yeah they didn't come up.

    Yes he is fine, the choice is there to do a film or documentary or biopic. It is not compulsory to do a film.
