Into Film gives every child and young person aged 5 to 19 in the UK the chance to experience film creatively and critically as part of a rich and well-rounded education, whilst also learning skills they can use to build a career in the film industry. They support teachers and educators to achieve a wide range of effective learning outcomes in their use of film. Their programme includes a network of extra-curricular film clubs, resources for use in clubs and in the classroom, training opportunities, a cinema-based film festival and our annual Awards. A group of our students worked with local film maker Annabel McCourt of Cut Ltd. To produce a short film that was subsequently entered into the 2016 Into Film Awards. We were delighted to hear that the film was shortlisted and the students were invited to the prestigious Into film Awards at the Leicester Square Odeon in London on 15th March. This was a glitzy affair with A list celebs such as Simon Pegg attending. We were very happy and proud to see our students actually win the award for Best Documentary and astonished to learn that this was against 1500 entries! The star of the film is William McCullion and the rest of the crew comprised Caitlin O’Leary, Alice Balderston, Luke Slaney and Tiffany Robinson. Kieran Bew who recently starred in ITV’s Boewolf presented the award.
