About Into Film

Into Film is the UK’s leading charity for film in education. We support educators to unlock the power of film to deliver transformative learning outcomes for children and young people aged 5-19 in class, extra-curricular settings and in cinemas. Designed in partnership with educators, our programme features the UK’s only school-specific film streaming service (Into Film+), online teaching resources and training, careers information, cinema screenings and a network of extra-curricular film clubs. The core Into Film programme is free for UK state schools thanks to funding from the National Lottery (through the BFI), Cinema First and Northern Ireland Screen.

Taking place from 8-25 November, the Into Film Festival helps educators bring learning to life for 5-19 year olds across the UK by inspiring young people to watch, understand and make film in new and creative ways. Bookings are open for screenings and special events across the UK -
