Festival Terms & Conditions

If you make a booking to attend the Into Film Festival, there are some conditions you should be aware of.

Why do you need my mobile number when I make a booking for the Festival?

We may need to contact you on your mobile if any notable problems arise with an Into Film event or service you have signed up to. (e.g. an Into Film Festival event you have booked or an Into Film Club you have set-up).

More information

For more information about the organisation and data management of the Festival, please view our FAQs and Privacy Policy.

Event capture

Into Film may record and/or photograph events during the Into Film Festival for repurposing on our website, YouTube and Vimeo channels and educational materials. Where this is taking place we will use notices to make people aware that we are recording and to allow them the chance to opt out of any recording or photography.

In return for access to the event, you irrevocably consent to any such filming, photography and/or live streaming and to Into Film reproducing and publishing your words and/or likeness in any transcript of or publication relating to the event and/or for the purposes of publicising the services of Into Film and its partners.

Responsibility of attendance

The adults who chaperone young people at Into Film Festival events are responsible for the behaviour and well-being of their group. It is the responsibility of the person that books to ensure the correct risk assessments are undertaken and permissions sought.

Booking alterations

If you need to cancel or change your booking please contact the Festival Bookings team as soon as possible so we can inform the cinema or releases the spaces.

All Into Film Festival events are completely free of charge thanks to the generosity of our partners, including cinemas who donate their venues and staff's time in-kind. If you are not able to attend, please give us a minimum of 48 hours notice to allow these places to be offered to another group and minimise the costs incurred by our partners. We do understand that sometimes, for reasons out of your control, you are unable to attend, though if you do not give us prior notice you may be liable for a charge of up to £100.

Risk Assessment

Event Safety - This is a comprehensive Event Safety guide which represents the necessary safety precautions associated with this activity. It should be viewed by all Bookers and Group Leaders.

Festival venues

Please note: whilst all venues are chosen based on their existing interest and experience in public activities and film events we are unable to vet each individual venue. We advise all Group Leaders to become familiar with the Fire Emergency Procedures, medical procedures and facilities at your venue, so you can make provisions for your group's needs. You can obtain Health & Safety information about your venue in advance by contact our Bookings team.
