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.

The 2019 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! 

Sadly we were unable to run the Into Film Festival in November 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, however we intend to return in November 2021 with a full Festival including film screenings of fantastic new titles and special events across the four nations.

We hope to run some smaller screenings for schools in the 2021 spring term, which will be organised directly with teachers and our bookings team. Due to cinema closures varying across the UK, we're only able to run these in certain areas, and will reach out to our Into Film Clubs and previous Into Film Festival attendees in those locations.

What our educators say

"Since introducing a film club it has become the most popular extended schools activity we offer. I see it as a powerful tool for enriching children's lives by delivering a regular diet of high-quality, thought-provoking film."
