Since 2013, Into Film and the British Council have worked together to compile the best of British short films for young people made each year. Comprised of animation and live action, the 2016 edition for secondary ages is full of exciting new work from emerging British filmmakers. From clever animations about an unfrozen mammoth forced into modern society, the futility of war, and conversations with a spiritual healer to thought-provoking dramas about racial tensions in a small English village, female coming of age, a little brother’s experience of the Hillsborough disaster and a heart-in-mouth moment in the life of an emergency services phone operator. This is an impressive line-up of short films made by up and coming British filmmakers featuring engaging stories and issues for secondary ages. Films in this programme include: Tusk (Animation, Dir Raury Waudby-Tolley) Offside (Live Action, Dir Jimmy Dean) The River (Animation, Dir Heeseon Kim) Saturday (Live Action, Dir Mike Forshaw) Two Seas (Live Action, Dir Orlando Cubbitt) WAR (Live Action, Dir Nilesh Bell-Gorsia) Patriot (Live Action, Dir Eva Riley) Operator (Live Action, Dir Caroline Bartleet) Mr Madilla (Animation, Dir Raury Waudby-Tolley)

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
