About FilmDoo Academy

The FilmDoo Story


FilmDoo Academy is a multi-award winning organisation dedicated to transforming education around the world. We are regarded as the pioneers and industry leaders for film- and video-based learning.

2015 saw the birth of FilmDoo, our movie-streaming platform helping people to discover and watch great films from around the world. FilmDoo now has over 280,000 registered users from 194 countries and over 3,000 films. We partner with major organisations across technology, film, language learning and edtech. Today, FilmDoo has one of the world’s largest international film catalogues online. With a clear vision to close the language and cultural gap around the world and to transform education using the power of films and videos, our exciting and innovative journey began.

In 2019, FilmDoo undertook scientific research to study the impact which film has on teaching and learning. The outcome of this research confirmed that student engagement is positively correlated to the use of film and video - driven by the positive experience and improved motivations associated with learning through engaging, multimodal audiovisual content.

Raising student engagement and motivation levels has been a major problem in remote and online learning - now more relevant than ever, as schools, universities and language schools have all needed to go online in light of the pandemic. At FilmDoo, we saw an opportunity to use film and video to help. So we launched FilmDoo Academy to help bring interactive classroom and online learning through any film and video.

FilmDoo Academy, the birth-child of FilmDoo, provides teachers and educators with the most cost-effective, highest quality and most engaging educational tool on the market today. Our game-based edtech tool helps turn any film and video into interactive learning content. With our easy-to-use course authoring tool, teachers have the ability to create bespoke lessons and bring interactive learning through any film and video in a matter of minutes! Not only that, teachers are able to check for understanding of knowledge retention and “recall” by adding quizzes, questions and puzzles to the video.

Using film and video, teachers around the world ignite their students' passion and thirst for learning, whilst engaging them in a format that comes naturally - in particular, for the average Gen Z student who now spends four hours a day watching mobile videos. Whilst traditional teaching methods struggle to keep students engaged, the modern students now respond to film- and video-based learning - which is at the heart of FilmDoo.

We work with the world’s largest dedicated learning institutions to bring engaging and impactful video tools to assist in all subjects, across all year groups and from the classroom to homework, to intervention to home and remote teaching and everything in between!
