Into Film Festival Programme

This year’s Into Film Festival offers up over 165 titles carefully curated for their appeal and suitability for young people aged from 5-19.

The 2016 Into Film Festival is divided into six strands, bringing a thought-provoking programme of diverse stories, genres and themes that will engage and excite young people in the cinematic experience.

These strands have been curated with the aim of immersing students in the power of imagination; addressing the importance of diversity; exploring changes in circumstance and transition, and celebrating individuals, movements and achievements that have changed the course of history. Our Black Star strand complements the BFI's own Black Star season, celebrating the range, versatility and power of black actors. Titles across the strands include blockbuster premieres, alongside classics and hidden gems from the archive, spanning modern foreign language to animation.
