Since launching the Into Film+ streaming service back in the summer of 2021, we've been delighted to see the service go from strength to strength, revolutionising the way educators can use film in the classroom. We're constantly working to improve and develop Into Film+, and we're thrilled to introduce our latest new feature: Into Film+ Highlights.

The new highlights feature allows you to save a useful scene (or short segment of a film) from a feature or short film on Into Film+ and then easily play it back whenever you need it. Rather than having to use the time-bar to scroll to the scene you're looking for, or needing to note down timecodes, our highlights feature allows you to easily access the key moments in a film, making it much easier to use film to illustrate topics in classroom learning.

When streaming a film with Into Film+, you'll notice a new 'Create Highlight' option in the menu to the right of the player window. Once you hit that button, you'll be asked to select the start and end time of your highlight. You can also give your highlight a title, and even add notes to it. And that's it! The next time you return to that film page, when you load up the Into Film+ player, your highlight will be there waiting for you, ready to play at the click of a button.

Please note: while the highlights feature is usable on the vast majority of titles, licencing restrictions mean that there are a few titles where the feature will be disabled.

As this is a brand new feature, Into Film+ highlights will be in 'beta' for a while, as we make sure everything is working smoothly, and iron out any kinks. We'd also love to hear your feedback on this new feature to help us know how to improve it and better serve the needs of educators. Once you've had a go at using the highlights feature, please fill in our short survey to help us gather feedback and suggestions.

* Screenings for an entertainment or extra-curricular purpose require a PVS (Public Video Screening) Licence from Filmbankmedia. State-funded schools in England are covered by the PVS Licence.

Into Film and the Into Film+ streaming service is supported by the UK film industry through Cinema First and the BFI through National Lottery Funding, thanks to National Lottery players.
