The Into Film Awards are back again for 2017, as we set out to find the best young filmmakers, reviewers, film clubs and teachers of the past twelve months.
This year's ceremony will once again be held at the famous ODEON Cinema Leicester Square in London, on Tuesday 14 March 2017, and will highlight just how much creativity and filmmaking talent is present among today's schools and young people. Our education partner for this year's Awards is NATE.
Whether you're a filmmaker who creates engaging short films, a review writer, a film club leader or a teacher - we want to hear about and celebrate your achievements. To find out more about the different awards, and for information on how to enter, click on each category below.
We are now open for submissions and the deadline for applications is 31 January 2017. All nominees will be invited to the ceremony and winners will be announced on the day.
