Our Young Reporter Programme provides children and young people with the opportunity to become the voice of Into Film. Members of the programme are given the opportunity to develop film reporting and reviewing skills, receive media training and attend exclusive behind-the-scenes events.

Students of the Young Reporter Programme will receive training that develops their film watching, understanding and presenting to camera skills, and a chance to learn about how the film industry works with hands-on experiences, behind-the-scenes access and supported learning. They will get the opportunity to learn about film programming and curation and the chance to attend events such as film festivals, premieres and filmmaker Q&As.

Once their time on the programme is up, students will receive an Into Film graduation certificate and the chance to join the Young Reporter alumni for continuous mentoring and support.

I think it's great to be encouraging kids' enthusiasm for film. I think film is such an educator and you can learn so much about other cultures and other people through film.

In 2015 we launched our new Get Into Film YouTube channel. Our content is presented by young people, for young people, across the UK and beyond. Young reporters not only present the content, but bring their ideas to the table and have the chance to have them published. 

I would recommend anyone who is interested in film joining because it gives them amazing opportunities. It's also good for experience if you want to be a presenter in the future

If you have any film enthusiasts in your midst, encourage them to get involved when applications are open.

The Into Film Young Reporters' scheme is a wonderful opportunity. Not only have my students thoroughly enjoyed the experience, they have developed important skills and knowledge that will serve them well in the future.
