Festival Launch 2016

Into Film Festival

The Into Film Festival is a free, annual, UK-wide celebration of film and education for 5-19 year olds.

The Into Film Festival supports our vision to put film at the heart of children and young people's learning, contributing to their cultural, creative and personal development. 

Our aim is to help educators bring learning to life for 5-19 year olds across the UK by inspiring young people to watch, make and understand film in new and creative ways. To support this, the Festival provides thousands of free film activities, workshops and cinema experiences to engage and entertain young people and educators alike.

The 2017 Into Film Festival took place between 8-24 November. We look forward to seeing you all again at the 2018 Into Film Festival.

Check out highlights from the 2017 Into Film Festival.

What our educators say

"Our SATs results this year were great, both progress and attainment in reading and writing have improved compared with last year, which we feel has been largely as a result of integrating the Into Film strategies."
