Best of Documentary

Non-fiction filmmaking gives young people the opportunity to explore the stories from their local area, instilling a sense of pride and identity. These stories can be just as thrilling and powerful as any Hollywood blockbuster.

The Animation Challenge

Between February and April 2017, Into Film ran a competition for clubs and young people to create short, stop motion animations using household objects and simple techniques. The films in this collection are both from first time animators and those with some experience and the results demonstrate how effective simple animating can be.
