The Into Film Awards are back for 2017 and this year with support from Tim Peake’s Principia mission, which continues to inspire young people aged 5 – 19 with its own filmmaking category – Into Film: Into Space & Home.

The award ceremony takes place on 14 March at ODEON Leicester Square in London and sets out to find the best young filmmakers, reviewers, film clubs and teachers of the past twelve months.

After Tim Peake watched young people’s films on-board the International Space Station in 2016, this new competition invites young people to create a short film, clip, animation or piece of moving image of any kind of up to three minutes, inspired by the Principia mission.

As well as the special guest category, Into Film: Into Space & Home, there are 15 other awards to be won in 13 categories, including eight filmmaking sub-categories in live action, documentary and animation, alongside Reviews of the Year, Teacher of the Year and Film Clubs of the Year.

Designed to recognise, showcase and celebrate young people’s involvement in film and education, this star-studded, red-carpet event will bring together film industry professionals and young people to shine a spotlight on the filmmaking achievements of 5-19 year olds from across the UK, as well as to commend teachers’ use of film in the classroom, young film reviewers, and exceptional film clubs in primary and secondary schools.

All schools, organisations and individuals can enter and the deadline for applications is 31 January 2017.
