Speaking about this guide, Head of IFI Education Alicia McGivern said, 'We are thrilled to offer this free download studyguide for teachers to accompany our streaming offer on IFI@Schools and in cinema screenings around the country. With the support of COGG and in association with Break Out Pictures, teachers can engage with An Cailín Ciúin in their classrooms, watching the film and choosing from a whole range of follow up work in the guide.'
