The Into Film Festival 2017 will take place from November 8th-24th, with 3,000 free screenings and events, supported by teaching resources, to engage, inspire and educate young people through the medium of film.
This year the Festival - the world’s largest free film festival for young people - seeks to creatively involve 500,000 5-19 year olds and educators from all backgrounds and corners of the UK in watching and making films, some for the first time.
The thought-provoking programme will offer a range of stories curated with six themes in mind to promote discussion about a broad range of issues. Film titles will include blockbuster premieres alongside classics and hidden gems from the archive, spanning modern foreign language to animation to films adapted from books and plays.
The annual event is hosted by education charity Into Film as part of its vision to put film at the heart of young people’s learning and personal development, and is supported by the BFI, Cinema First, a wide collaboration with UK cinema industry partners and delivery partners National Schools Partnership.
All screenings and events are free. For information or to book tickets visit www.intofilm.org/festival
