- Winner to be Announced at Into Film Awards, March 24th -

Do you, or a colleague, use film to support topics in the curriculum or engage with students that find traditional learning methods difficult? Have you ever used film to tackle challenging subjects like bullying or racism? Do you include filmmaking activities in your lessons, or encourage your pupils to develop their critical analysis and literacy skills by discussing films and writing reviews?

To celebrate the value of film as a learning tool and champion educators who are using the medium interestingly and effectively in class, the education charity Into Film is inviting teachers to nominate themselves or a colleague for its ‘Most Inspirational Use of Film in Class’ Award. Nominations may be made by teachers themselves or by a colleague, parent or student and must include an example of work to demonstrate the inspirational use of film in the classroom – be that screenings of interesting films, filmmaking, review writing or other film-related activities that have had a positive impact on young people’s academic or social development.

The winner will be announced at the first ever Into Film Awards ceremony, taking place at London’s prestigious Empire Leicester Square on 24th March 2015. A host of film industry professionals will be judging, presenting and attending the ceremony, which will include a number of categories to showcase and celebrate young people’s involvement in film and education by recognising the best young filmmakers, review writers, film clubs and inspirational teachers using film in class.

Entries to the Inspirational Use of Film category must be submitted by 5pm on February 26th at http://www.intofilm.org/awards2015-inspirational
