Get Into Filmmaking: Six Sessions from Story to Screen is a programme of filmmaking guidance, aimed at both Into Film Club leaders and members. It aims to simplify filmmaking, enhance the development of filmmaking skills and give a clear structure on how to make a film in half a term. As the name suggests there are six individual sessions, each based around a key question, which are accessible to young people of all age ranges.

Get Into Filmmaking: Six Sessions from Story to Screen is designed to guide Into Film Club leaders and members through pre-production activities such as scriptwriting and storyboarding, to film production itself, including camera shots, lighting and sound effects, to postproduction, editing and next steps such as entering the finished films into the Film of the Month competition and the Into Film Awards.

Each week is based around a specific key question, focusing members on developing both their filmmaking and life skills such as teamwork, communication or problem solving:
Week 1 What makes a successful film?
Week 2 How can we plan a film?
Week 3 What do we need to do before we start filming?
Week 4 How do we shoot a film?
Week 5 Can editing improve our film?
Week 6 How can we showcase, share and celebrate our film?
