Into Film Clubs
Find out everything you need to know about starting an Into Film Club.
The 2022 Into Film Awards took place on Tuesday 28 June at London's ODEON Luxe Leicester Square, celebrating the best and brightest young filmmaking talent from across the UK, as well as championing inspiring teachers and incredible Into Film Clubs.
Hosted by TV presenter, writer, actor and comedian Sue Perkins, the ceremony saw a total of eleven awards dished out to inspirational young people and educators from across the UK. A whole host of filmmaking talent was on hand to help present the awards, including Into Film Ambassador and Academy Award-winning actor Eddie Redmayne, BAFTA winner and Into Film Scotland Ambassador Jack Lowden, and EE Rising Star winner Lashana Lynch.
Experiencing the same red carpet at the ODEON Luxe Leicester Square that countless film stars have graced before them, our nominees were treated to a once-in-a-lifetime experience, celebrating both their own remarkable achievements and the incredible, transformative power of film and filmmaking at large. This was the first Into Film Awards ceremony we've been able to hold in person since 2019, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Check out some highlights from the big day in the video above.
As well as our usual filmmaking categories - which give different age-groups the chance to compete with their peers in live action and animated filmmaking - this year also included a special new category. Changes for a Better World was designed to capture the passion and enthusiasm of young people and their feelings around the issue of climate change and protecting our planet. Empowering young people to make a film about what mattered to them led to some hugely impactful films, with each of the three nominated entries receiving special certificates and getting their moment on stage in recognition of their fantastic work.
Elsewhere, we continued to nominate inspirational educators with our Teacher of the Year award, and transformative Into Film Clubs with Club of the Year, and it wouldn't be Into Film without acknowledging the incredible value of review writing in Review of the Year. We also honoured three incredible Ones to Watch (including one out-right winner) all of whom are sure to go far in the film industry in the years to come.
