About The Into Film Festival

About The Into Film Festival

Supporting our vision of putting film at the heart of children and young people's education, the Into Film Festival is the largest youth-focused film festival in the world! After six successful years, the Into Film Festival will return once again in the autumn of 2019. Stay tuned for booking details later in the year.

Over 2 million pupils and teachers have walked through cinema doors across the UK since the first Festival in 2013, and that number only increases each year. Boasting everything from specialist films to exclusive previews of upcoming blockbusters - as well as inclusive SEN and autism-friendly screenings - the Into Film Festival has something to offer everyone.

Once bookings go live later in the year, tickets will be free to book for everybody, and you'll have access to:

  • A programme of over 150 films
  • Showing at 550 venues across the UK
  • Talks, workshops and careers advice
  • Complementary learning resources

Priority Booking for Into Film Clubs

Did you know Into Film Clubs got priority access to Festival bookings? Club leaders enjoy 24 hours of priority booking before the rest of the UK.

If you haven't already, you can start an Into Film Club today and bring that Festival feeling to your school all year-round, and ensure you get ahead of the game for next year's Festival.

Educators actively and directly feed into the development of the Festival programme, and 94% of teachers surveyed felt the Festival activities were valuable to the broader education of young people, and 83% said the festival is useful in helping to deliver the curriculum. 

I think the Festival is a great opportunity for students to not only learn in a different environment but experience things in a different way, it helps develop relationships between students and also teachers and students. It's surprising the impact it can have.
