Sheffield youngsters will enjoy films for free when the city plays its part in the world’s biggest youth cinema event next month.

The Into Film Festival runs from November 4 to 21 with a packed programme of screenings and events offering something for everyone.

Five to 19-year-olds from schools, colleges and youth groups will be taking part in the event, which uses the power of film to captivate young minds and bring learning to life.

Highlights will include a two day film making workshop with a professional director at the Showroom on November 15 and 16.

On November 4 there will be a screening of The Railway Man followed by a discussion on the issues raised at Cineworld Sheffield.

After a showing of Space Station 3D at the same venue, there will be a talk from Tom Lyons of the European Space Education resource office.

Free screenings throughout the festival will include Escape From Planet Earth, Frozen, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, Mr Peabody and Sherman, Guardians of the Galaxy and many more.

The annual festival is run by the British Film Institute with the support of Big Lottery funding.
