Into Film Festival 2019

Into Film Festival

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

Last year's Into Film Festival took place between 6-22 November, with three weeks of engaging film screenings, workshops and special events across the UK drawing an audience of over half a million people - our biggest year yet!

Since March we've been keeping a close eye on the current restrictions due to COVID-19, and as we continue to bear these in mind we're making plans for our 2020 Into Film Festival. We're hoping this will look similar to last year's, but are very aware this could change as the year progresses. We will likely be running the Into Film Festival with a reduced capacity, and of course will be adhering to all government guidelines and measures to keep film clubs, parents, home educators, schools and all attendees safe.

What our educators say

"For our target areas, although we didn’t realise it initially, film club is hitting pretty much every one spot on: boys’ writing, external provision and going for an Artsmark award…. "
