Featuring an ever-growing catalogue of hundreds of films, documentaries and TV programmes that cater to all pupils, Into Film+ features everything from timeless classics to independent short film and exciting new releases - all carefully selected to support your teaching of the curriculum, and packaged with curriculum-linked resources, discussion guides, and extra wraparound content from leading filmmakers.

As well as being of huge benefit to learning in the classroom, Into Film+ can also be a fantastic tool for extra-curricular settings. Our Into Film Clubs are a fantastic way of bringing young people together to enjoy film watching and reviewing, while film screenings are the perfect activity to complement any number of extra-curricular activities or after-school clubs. Streaming a film can also be the ideal activity for periods of wet weather play.

I feel as though the whole layout of Into Film+ and the additional resources will be of great use in my teaching. It's easy to use and quick. I think it will really benefit the learning of the students.
