Getting Started with Into Film+

Setting up a new Into Film Account

To use Into Film+, you will first need to set up a free Into Film Account, and provide some additional information about your organisation. You will also need a Public Video Screening (PVS) Licence to stream films on Into Film+. 

Follow the steps below to get started with Into Film+.

Upgrading an existing Account

If you have an existing Into Film Account, and want to stream films on Into Film+, it's easy to upgrade your Account. Either go to your Profile, or try to stream an Into Flm+ title, and you will be taken to a sign-up form where we will verify that your organisation has the required licence. Once this information has been verified, you can start streaming!

Please note that once you purchase a PVS Licence, you may have to wait up to 4 business days before you will be able to access Into Film+ while your new licence is processed by Filmbankmedia.

Please note: it is not possible to upgrade to Into Film+ Premium, which is currently only available to state schools in England that are funded by the Department for Education. Find out more about Into Film+ Premium in our FAQs.

If you are a school, please make sure that you have your URN/SEED/IRN reference to hand when you upgrade your Account. If you're not sure what your reference number is, you can find more information about this in the How Do I Get a Licence? section.

If you are a non-school organisation, please make sure you have a PVS Licence Account No. to hand. You can find more information about this in the How Do I Get a Licence? section.
