The UK-wide Into Film Festival returns this November offering free access to film screenings, resources and events. But primary schools need to be quick off the mark to reserve their places

Using film in and out of the classroom can engage and inspire a new generation of young minds and provide children and young people with additional literacy, comprehension, analytical and writing skills.

Education charity, Into Film, hosts an annual free film festival for schools, the Into Film Festival. This year, the festival returns from November 7 to 24, offering a UK-wide free event for schools with film screenings and curriculum-linked events hosted by special guests from the world of film.

The programme engages more than one million 5 to 19-year-olds every year – in classrooms, through extra-curricular activities, in cinemas and online. The programme is curated to support the curriculum and includes films with PSHE topics too, ranging from anti-bullying, mental wellbeing, citizenship, and friendship.
