Our judging panel will be looking out for films which are the most creative, inspiring and have a clear message. The three selected finalists from both the primary and secondary age category will be invited to a private screening at London’s BFI where they will be presented great prizes for their school or youth organisation to award their creative achievements!
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.

Childnet is delighted to announce that their annual film competition is now open to pupils aged 7-18!
Once again Childnet would like to invite all primary and secondary schools as well as youth organisations across the UK to enter their challenge to create a short film about internet safety. As always the films should showcase the positive and inspiring use of the internet, as this still remains at the heart of Childnet’s Film Competition 2015.
However, this year they have added a bit of a twist and have teamed up with PhoneBrain, a great organisation who aims to educate users about premium rate services. Teaming up with PhoneBrain has allowed Childnet to stretch and challenge the 11+ category even further. So, for the first time ever there will be 2 projects to choose from in the secondary age category (ages 11 to 18)!
The judging panel will be looking out for films which are the most creative, are closest to the theme and have a clear message. These film-makers will be invited to a private screening at London’s BFI where they will be awarded great prizes for their creative achievements!
