UK pupils share their stories through film, exploring topics such as Lockdown, Mental Health, Anti-Bullying, OCD, Ukraine & Climate Change
After a brief hiatus due to Covid-19 restrictions, education charity, Into Film, has today announced this year’s Into Film Awards nominees ahead of the ceremony on 28 June.
This year’s film nominations are stronger than ever, showcasing an impressive range of unique stories and filmmaking talent that evidence the unprecedented challenges young people have been through over the past two years. The wide range of themes and topics covered include the impact of lockdown on mental health, the intersection of race and beauty standards in the UK, Ukrainian cultural identity, climate change and environmental protection, managing OCD, anti-bullying, the importance of kindness and the anniversary of integrated education being introduced in Northern Ireland.
The Into Film Awards is an opportunity to celebrate the creativity and achievements of children and young people from all backgrounds across the UK, and they specifically support the invaluable role that film can play in education. Young people have been entering short films - made at their schools, colleges, Into Film Clubs or youth groups - for the annual event, and the best film reviewers, Into Film Clubs and educators will also be honoured. Now in its sixth year, the Into Film Awards is the UK’s largest celebration of young people’s creativity and is due to take place at the ODEON Luxe Leicester Square on 28 June where an esteemed group of film stars will be on hand to present Awards to the winners.
All the 2022 nominated films are available to watch here.
