Into Film Clubs: Bring young people back together again

With the coronavirus outbreak continuing to impact schools, we recognise that this is a tough time for everyone. An Into Film Club is a fun, easy and free way to support pupils' wellbeing. Our clubs offer young people a sense of community, and a safe space to interact with each other and express themselves and their experiences - more important now than ever.

To help you run your film club in a safe and COVID-secure way, we've created a set of resources offering simple guidance on three approaches you might take: a fully virtual club, a socially-distanced after school club, or bringing the club experience directly into your classroom by using film to enhance the curriculum, deliver the wellbeing agenda and discuss key themes. These resources are also available in the Welsh language.

All that's left is to enjoy the experience of watching and discussing films together. If you're not sure what to watch, we can help with that too - see our film lists for ideas.

Updating our resources

We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.
