Discover free films for watching, discussing and exploring filmmaking.
We've teamed up with Arts Award to help encourage young people involved in the Into Film programme to gain an accredited qualification and further develop their creative talents.
Arts Award's accreditation links with Into Film's own programme of film watching, making and understanding, whether your students or youth group are discussing and reviewing films in a communal setting, attending the Into Film Festival, taking part in filmmaking activities or engaging with members of the film industry.
To celebrate the continued partnership between Into Film and Arts Award we have developed a new resource to give educators a host of ideas on how they can help their pupils earn the Arts Award Discover and Arts Award Explore achievements using film. A complementary 'Exemplar Projects' document also celebrates the work of three primary schools, highlighting how they've used film and Into Film Clubs to create amazing Arts Award projects.
Arts Award supports young people to grow as artists and arts leaders. Four qualifications are on offer, along with an introductory level. At all levels, Arts Award develops creativity, leadership and communication skills. Open to anyone up to age 25, Arts Award embraces all interests and backgrounds. Young people can achieve an award through any arts, media or cultural activity, all of which helps to develop knowledge and understanding of their chosen art forms.
From traditional arts subjects such as visual arts, drama and music, through to STEM subjects for cinematography, set design or lighting; using film to complete Arts Award is an excellent way to engage young people. The possibilities are endless!Annabel Thomas, Art Development Manager at Arts Award
William Tyndale Primary School used the film Fantastic Mr Fox and the accompanying Into Film resource to achieve Arts Award Discover. To gain these awards, pupils created their own film posters and wrote their own film reviews, which they also enjoyed video-recording. For Arts Award Explore the same school created short animated films, where pupils designed their own sets and characters and storyboarded different filming options.
The children loved completing Arts Award Discover and Explore as part of our Into Film Club. They gained a deep understanding of film as an art form. Taking great pride in the work they produced, they relished the opportunity to share it with their friends, family and other schools.Melanie Lawrence, Teacher, William Tyndale Primary School
