In March 2022, we launched a new series that previews which important academic calendar dates we'll be engaging with each half-term. This aims to help teachers plan their lessons in advance and allows us to package both new and existing content in an accessible way.

Our latest edition covers a number of important dates in May and June, from Mental Health Awareness Week to World Environment Day. As before, the information and links below are an easy, at-a-glance way of knowing what's coming up, but we'll be exploring many in more detail as the dates approach.


  • Local and Community History Month - As cinemas opened their doors again last year after covid restrictions eased, we published two articles exploring the history of local cinemas, including one from young people and one from regional cinema owners. This year is still a perfect chance to run a similar activity exploring the history of your local cinema.

June (up to the Summer half-term holidays)

  • World Environment Day (5 June) - Our Earth is once again the perfect starting point, and all the feature-length and short films are relevant in this case.

Looking further down the line, Refugee Week (20 - 26 June) continues to be particularly important because of how many people are being displaced from their county of origin due to war and conflict. Our recently published selection of crucial short films provides a simple and accessible starting point, and a new round-up of resources around this year's theme of 'Healing' will be available soon. Meanwhile, on Windrush Day (22 June), we will be detailing an upcoming Black history and experiences Into Film+ programme, which will be available to all UK educators at the beginning of the Autumn school term.

Finally, we're excited to launch our newly updated Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) theme page, which houses a wide range of resources, articles and Into Film+ titles that can be explored with young people of all ages.

*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.
