Into Film Festival will take place 9-25 November will offer a diverse program of free screenings and events to ‘captivate young minds and bring learning to life’.

The festival has a number of high-profile supporters like actor Michael Sheen, who believes the festival is important because of its potential to inspire young people, adding “films have educated me as much as school has. Through film young people can broaden their horizons, be inspired to recognise their potential and tell their own stories so the rest of the world may one day hear them,” he said. “Film gave me this magical world that I could go to – I think that’s something that people can get from the Into Film Festival.”
