Many teachers are finding that the strategic use of short video clips helps facilitate classroom communication in the target language (in speech or writing). It can be especially helpful for teachers who are just starting out and getting comfortable with classroom strategies like story asking and PQA (personalized question and answer). Here are some links to help teachers get started with strategies, clips and resources.
NB, MovieTalk is not about finding videos in your target language. Most resources are too difficult for beginning students to understand anyway. The best clips have little to no dialogue. You (the teacher) provide the narration, limiting vocabulary so that your students can understand. The video merely supports the input you are providing.
Here is the website of Dr. Ashley Hastings, originator of the term, and of this technique of using movie clips to teach language.

Whatever language you teach, Spanish teacher Brian Kandel has shared an immense amount of MT resources.
Dustin Williamson uses MT extensively, and has presented how and why he does it.
