Into Film Clubs
Find out everything you need to know about starting an Into Film Club
The Into Film Festival is back for 2019, and to celebrate bookings going live - screenings are already filling up quickly so be sure to book now! - and to mark International Literacy Day on Sunday 8 September, we're also launching our Festival Review Writing Competition.
Film reviewing can be an excellent tool to help boost literacy, and adds an extra educational element to visiting the Into Film Festival. In fact, one GCSE Examiner's Board have recently included film reviewing as part of their exam. Further information can be found in Section B on Page 8 of the Eduqas English Language Examiner's Report.
