Abstract: Films can serve as triggers for trainee teachers to focus on an issue of concern, ponder on the meanings and implications, and finally change or modify their values, beliefs and actions. This study examines the responses of 243 trainee teachers enrolled in a module in an institute of education where films are used to promote reflective learning. An analysis of the trainee teachers' survey responses reveals that while the trainee teachers find the films interesting and useful for their reflective learning, there is a need to scaffold the issues raised in the films with appropriate lectures, readings, and guidance from the instructors.
