Into Film Awards 2019

Please note: submissions for the the 2019 Into Film Awards have now closed. 

The Into Film Awards is the best place to showcase young filmmaking talent, with categories designed to highlight the large pool of young creatives in the UK. Set out to find the most talented filmmakers, reviewers, Into Film Clubs and educators, we encourage children and young people aged 5-19 from all backgrounds and with all abilities to get involved. The Into Film Awards is also designed to be a lot of fun, with famous faces and incredible talent from across the film industry on hand to present the Awards. This year's Into Film Awards will be held at the recently refurbished ODEON Luxe Leicester Square on Monday 4 March.
