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! However, for the next edition, we've had to do things a little differently.

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 2020 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.
