The annual Into Film Festival takes place in November with 3,000 free screenings and events. It is the world’s largest film education festival. Sam Wilson looks at what’s on this year

“I cannot state how wonderful this experience was for my pupils. I felt honoured to be able to take some of these children to the cinema for the first time. I believe this is a trip which they will remember and think back on for a very long time. I teach in a deprived area and this trip was very special for staff and pupils alike.” Teacher, Into Film Festival 2016.

For three weeks this autumn teachers can take students to the cinema for free and use the immersive power of film to engage young minds in a host of topics at the Into Film Festival, which takes place from November 8 to 24.
