Join us for a day of workshops, networking, films and talks about volunteer film programming and running a student cinema. The day is aimed at students and 18-30 years old running their own community cinemas, but is open to all ages.
Tickets are just £20 (including a light lunch and refreshments).
Keep an eye out for the release of our full programme very soon!
Into Film would like to invite your cinema to be part of the Into Film Festival 2018, which will take place from 7 – 23 November across the UK. The Into Film Festival is the world’s largest free film festival and aims to encourage young people to visit the cinema more often, building paying audiences for the future.
With over 600 venues participating in 2017, we had 486,000 students (aged 5-19) and teachers attending 3,000 screenings and special events across the UK. It’s a great opportunity to showcase your cinema and promote your upcoming programme and schemes to a captive audience.
The Festival opens up the world of film to young people, introducing them to different genres, and showcasing cinema as the gold-standard of film-viewing at a time when their social habits are forming. Many young people experience the cinema for the first time as part of the Festival, offering you the chance to forge new relationships and expand the audience base in your local area.
75% of young people who attended the 2017 Into Film Festival are more likely to go and see other films at the cinema as a result of the Festival –post-Festival student survey, 2017
“Business wise, it’s the venue promotion and exposure we got and the possible kids returning to our venue in the future with others” – Exhibitor, post-Festival exhibitor survey, 2017
We would love to include your venue in our programme this year. If you would like to be involved or have any questions, contact our Festival Manager on firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
