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, however this year we're adapting our festival plans…

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 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.

For any teachers interested in a cinema trip in November, we are aiming to run select screenings matching schools with participating local cinemas where possible. We're confident it's the best way to provide the opportunity given the current circumstances. We'll do our utmost to match many eager schools with participating cinemas though this will be a limited opportunity designed for school groups only.

If you are interested, please fill in this survey and we'll be in touch if we can offer you a trip.

If November feels too soon, we hope you will participate in our programme next year and we will keep in touch as plans are confirmed.
