Start teaching your students to make films with our resources and guidance.
Our Curricular Film of the Month competition celebrates the films made to support curriculum learning in classrooms and educational settings across the UK. Filmmaking can be a tremedous method of engaging with the curriculum, and while films that result from curricular learning may not have a home in regular filmmaking competitions, we're keen to shine a light on them and showcase the way learning comes to life through film.
Curricular Film of the Month is open to all educators across the UK that are teaching groups aged 5-19 in any subject. If your students have made a curricular film, then we want to see it! If you're a young person with a curricular film, please ask your teacher to submit it on your behalf.
Your film can be about any topic you like, as long as it was created to support curriculum learning. You can visit our Curricular Filmmaking page to find further guidance and resources on all aspects of creating curricular films. If you have created a purely genre film, please enter it into our regular Film of the Month competition instead.
Entries are judged by Into Film staff, and guest judges, and are assessed on the teaching and learning, idea, story and look, as well as the creative ability on display.Enter Competition
