Kieran Donaghy, whose award-winning resource site Film English has artfully guided teachers worldwide in using short films as a creative teaching medium, has published another perceptive and valuable work – Film in Action. Divided into three highly informative sections, Film in Action opens Part A by examining the emergence of film as a dynamic educational tool for guiding, inspiring, and motivating language learners. No less important in Part A, however, is the particular challenge Kieran somewhat subtly puts forward to language teachers: the challenge to explore the wealth of possibilities for using film as creative tool in their own classrooms. Based on the nearly limitless amount of available material, the means to access it, and the enormous potential for film as a classroom dynamic, Part A offers a persuasive argument that film should now be considered an essential element to successful language learning in the 21st Century. In fact, used properly, it would seem that film has the ability not only to complement but, in some ways, to surpass the merits of the traditional language textbook. With these underpinning qualities of film in mind, Kieran introduces language teachers to a myriad of possibilities for using film effectively and creatively in their classrooms and the rational for exploring and developing its potential. Indeed, the overriding question for teachers in Part A might well be “How can I best use film to get this idea across to my students?” This challenge, to look at film systemically as a language tool, offers teachers a fresh approach to the learning process, an approach equally important for their own personal and professional development as inspiration and progress are for their learners. In so many words, Part A suggests that the proper use of film in today’s language classroom results in a win-win situation for both teachers and their students.

This book is an extraordinary resource for English teachers - and any teacher who wants to explore film with their students in fresh, well-structured, and creative ways. The first part features an excellent lit review which convincingly argues the case for our need to devote much more class time to helping students develop not just literacy but film literacy and multiliteracies. This is a breath of fresh air. Part B features a generous array of lesson plans for using films to develop students' language skills like listening/speaking/writing while also developing higher order thinking skills and visual/social/multi literacies. The lesson plans are clearly written, easy to put into practice, and even feature links to videos teachers can use if they don't have time to find short films on their own. Part C is the really exciting part, where the book moves on to students actively producing their own responses to film, projects, and short films. This section is highly motivating and I'm really excited to put some of these projects to use with my teen and adult students. Finally the book closes with detailed advice on how to set up film clubs, film circles, or even film based language courses of your own. Well worth the money, I foresee myself incorporating this text into my teaching for years to come.
As an ELT professional of almost 20 years' experience, I have seldom come across such a useful teacher resource book. Kieran Donaghy inspires us with his vision of the use of moving image in the language classroom, and provides us with a wealth of practical ideas for teachers to try out. I have already used several of Kieran’s suggested lesson plans with different groups of students, and the response is always extremely positive – these ideas really engage students’ interest and get them talking. This book has instantly become one of my favourite ELT books both as a go to for lesson ideas and as an extremely well-written overview of the benefits and potential pitfalls of using short films and videos in the language classroom. I cannot recommend Film in Action highly enough..

An extensive list of additional resources adds to the pool of ideas. Kieran Donaghy's book is written in a very approachable manner and, by following clear guidelines and procedures, makes it easy for even a less experienced teacher to implement the ideas in the classroom.
