Into Film offers schools and colleges the opportunity to use film as a powerful tool for learning in the classroom. Educators can set up their own film club, giving students the opportunity to watch, discuss and review a huge range of films, as well as all the guidance to introduce filmmaking into school projects.
The Into Film programme can be harnessed in out of school settings such as youth clubs, community groups and libraries. Group leaders can contribute to the cultural, creative and personal development of their members by sharing filmmaking skills and setting up their very own film club to watch a huge range of films.
If you're a film fan aged 5—19 and you live in the UK, we have great opportunities for you to continue your journey into the world of film.
Find out about our partners and how we have embraced their wide-ranging expertise and experience.
