Yes, I think films can be educational. When I was teacher I would watch some films about teaching to be inspired by those good teachers in films. Do you think that films can be educational?

Well, it can be educational, but does it entertain and gets the interest of the people? it needs the attraction to get them hooked in.

@RodrickH There many Holocaust films that teach people what really happened and that should be taught in schools to teach kids about hate and how people should learn to be kindsr to others and not judge others.

Yes, some are definitely educational...for instance, the famous movie Titanic has given the idea about the giant ship with what all facilities it had, how it was operated, what was grandness of the ship and the complicated engine of the ship.These were not known to common people before the movie. Since we had a chapter of Titanic in our English subject I developed a keen interest on this vessel and did lot of research to know about it! I was more than happy to see in the movie about my dream vessel. This is just a small example I am quoting, there are many such movies in every field! Thanks dear friend @RodrickH!

Glad that you want to do some research about Titanic since you have watched a movie about it, I believe you have learned a lot from the research and the movie

In my very first Philosophy class in University We spent the whole class watch Monty Python's Flying Circus. I learned just how brilliant those philosophers are. The film "Supersize Me" was very educating and so was "The March of the Emperor Penguins".
