Into Film Awards 2017

Into Film Awards 2017

The Into Film Awards returned 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 again took place at the famous ODEON Cinema Leicester Square in London, on Tuesday 14 March 2017, and highlighted just how much creativity and filmmaking talent is present among today's schools and young people. Our education partner for this year's Awards was NATE.

Hundreds of young people and film clubs from all corners of the UK - with some traveling from as far afield as Belfast and Arbroath - made the trip to London's Leicester Square, home of all things film in the capital, to rub shoulders with the biggest and brightest names in film and celebrate their achievements.

We were joined at this year's Awards by a range of film industry professionals, from both in front of and behind the camera, including everyone from IMDb founder Col Needham and Foley Artist Peter Burgis; producer Barbara Broccoli and Director Amma Asante; and very special appearances from James Bond star Daniel Craig and our Ambassador, Eddie Redmayne.
