WHAT: Into Film is proud to present a free educational screening of Eighth Grade as part of the Spring Screenings: Changing Times programme. At a time of remarkable change around attitudes towards the environment, technology, politics, and identity, particularly for young people, this film will open up discussion around some of these themes, utilising the remarkable power of cinema to deepen learning as well as provoke conversation and debate. The screening will be preceded by a short compilation of archive film on the theme, special schools' edit provided by Yorkshire Film Archive.

We are delighted to be hosting this screening as part of Stroud Film Festival, an annual event that takes place at independent venues across the town and beyond during the month of March. Find out more about their programme here.

Film title

Eighth Grade


Kayla Day is a shy, awkward and introverted teenager trying her best to navigate the pitfalls of middle school whilst also cultivating an internet persona on YouTube and Snapchat. Although her online presence is confident and dynamic, she is still given the “Most Quiet” award at her school assembly whilst her single father struggles to connect with her. After unsuccessful attempts at flirting during a classmate’s pool party, Kayla is taken under the wing of a kind high school student Olivia and discovers that her teenage problems may have only just begun. An authentic, empathetic and relatable portrait of a girl on the cusp of maturity, 'Eighth Grade' is filled with shrewd observations on social media, growing up and overcoming anxiety.
