Anna Rankin, Into Film

As the Programme Delivery Manager (North & Midlands) at Into Film, my role involves working with my team to deliver engaging projects for 5-19 year olds. This year, we’ll be delivering archive workshops alongside regional archive partners and working with groups of 16-19 year olds to offer feedback on their local independent cinemas. My favourite moment from the past year was going to the Into Film Awards in London and seeing young people’s work showcased and celebrated.

Into Film puts film at the heart of children and young people’s educational, cultural and personal development.
More than half of UK schools engage with our programme of Into Film Clubs, special cinema screenings, and resources and training to support classroom teaching. Alongside rich online content for young audiences, this provides 5-19 year olds with inspiring opportunities to learn about and with film, and develop a passion for cinema.
