Education charity Into Film is to celebrate emerging young filmmakers, reviewers and teachers using film at star-studded awards ceremony

Calling all budding filmmakers, reviewers and teachers using film in class, Into Film, a leading education charity dedicated to putting film at the heart of learning, will host its 2nd Into Film Awards in March 2016 in London. The charity, which is supported by the BFI through Lottery funding, will pay tribute to outstanding 5-19 year olds that have demonstrated exceptional achievements in filmmaking or film reviewing. In addition, a ‘Teacher of The Year’ category champions educators who have demonstrated inspirational use of film in class.

Designed to recognise, showcase and celebrate young people’s involvement in film and education and encourage the filmmakers of the future, the Into Film Awards ceremony will bring together film industry professionals and young people to shine a spotlight on the filmmaking achievements of 5-19 year olds from across the UK, as well as recognising teachers’ use of film to support learning, exceptional film clubs in schools, and outstanding young film reviewers. This year’s filmmaking categories, in two age groups, include best live action, best documentary and best animation. Nominees will have their films screened to a 600-strong audience, with the winners being awarded a coveted gong at a star-studded ceremony in central London.
