Into Film Festival

9-25 November 2016

The Into Film Festival is a free, annual, UK-wide celebration of film and education for 5-19 year olds

The Into Film Festival supports our vision to put film at the heart of children and young people's learning, contributing to their cultural, creative and personal development. 

Our aim is to help educators bring learning to life for 5-19 year olds across the UK by inspiring young people to watch, make and understand film in new and creative ways. To support this, the Festival provides thousands of free film activities, workshops and cinema experiences to engage and entertain young people and educators alike.

What our educators say

"Into Film can be used to expose children to the wider world of cinema, to allow them to question how, why, where, when films are made; to allow them to believe that it could be them in front of or behind the camera."
