Supporting our vision of putting film at the heart of children and young people's education, the Into Film Festival is the largest youth-focused film festival in the world! The seventh Into Film Festival took place between 6-22 November 2019, and was our biggest yet, with over half a million places booked! However, for the next edition, we've had to do things a little differently.
Due to all of the changes and uncertainties that have presented themselves over the last few months, we are adapting our Festival plans. We know from regular conversations with educators that school trips during the current autumn 2020 term may be difficult to arrange. Therefore, we plan to move the bulk of our festival programme to early spring 2021, when we hope the landscape will allow for the full festival buzz that we all look forward to every year.
I think the Festival is a great opportunity for students to not only learn in a different environment but experience things in a different way, it helps develop relationships between students and also teachers and students. It's surprising the impact it can have.James Coder, Science Teacher, Fortismere Secondary School
