What is the Youth Advisory Council?

Children and young people are at the heart of our work - they even helped us decide on our name and logo back when we first became Into Film.

To help us find out what young people think and make sure we listen to young people, we established the Into Film Youth Advisory Council (YAC). Passionate young people aged between 10-18 years come together to provide feedback on our work and take part in fun film-related activities.

Applications for our current YAC member recruitment is now closed. We will update all those who applied by 6 August 2024. If you have a new query about applying, please send it to

Do not be intimidated because everyone is in the exact same position as you are. It's really inspiring to be a part of something like this. This is great way to learn more about the film industry.
