British actor EDDIE REDMAYNE is backing a new campaign to promote the use of films as an educational tool in schools.
The Les Miserables star has thrown his support behind the Into Film initiative, which aims to provide training and resources to teachers in the U.K. to help them use movies to educate children about history, culture and the creative arts.
Redmayne, 32, who launched the drive at a school in London this month (Feb14), says of the scheme, "I always thought that film was entertainment, it wasn't something you could learn from and my God, I was mistaken... In this country we have this great legacy and heritage, which is a wonderful thing but it made theater be the real focus... (People these days) are so much more film literate and editor literate than certainly my generation or the generations above... So it's an amazing time to be supporting this."
