Into Film

We are proud to offer students ‘Into Film’ as an exciting enrichment opportunity for those with an interest and passion for film and media.

Students have the opportunity to watch and review films, plan and direct their own blockbuster and attend the annual ‘Into Film Festival’ with workshops, guest speakers and over 130 films to watch.

Our students recently gained impressive success at the National Into Film Awards, which took place in London, after competing with schools across the country and achieving runner-up in the Film of the Month category.

The film entitled, ‘Nowhere’, received amazing feedback and was recognised for its interesting storyline, use of creative camera work and strong ‘Into Space’ theme.
