The Into Film Festival supports our vision to put film at the heart of children and young people’s learning, contributing to their cultural, creative and personal development. In 2014 the festival engaged over 372,000 young people and educators, making it the world’s largest annual free film festival for young people.
In planning for the Festival, we consult educators across all four nations of the UK. These consultations inform not only the programme but also the spread of events across the UK and the content of the film resources produced for every title on the programme, delivering clear learning outcomes whilst also helping to build a lifelong passion for film.
Our aim is to help educators bring learning to life for 5-19 year olds across the UK by inspiring young people to watch, make and understand film in new and creative ways. To support this, the Festival provides thousands of free film activities, workshops and cinema experiences to engage and entertain young people and educators alike.
Festival films, events and resources supported a wide array of curricular areas including English, Film and Media studies, History, Citizenship and Modern Foreign Languages. Additionally, many of the films screened have multiple cross-curricular links.
