WHAT IS THE
The very first National Youth Film Festival took place 21st October - 8th November 2013.
The festival is a UK wide celebration of film and education, especially for schools and youth groups, and aims to help educators to engage with and bring learning to life for 5-19 year olds.
The festival aims to inspire young people to watch, make and use film in new and creative ways that support their education and personal development, all while building a lifelong passion for film.
As part of the BFI's Education Scheme, the festival is supported by new film education industry organisation FILM NATION UK and many industry partners including Cinema First, and delivered by National Schools Partnership. FILM NATION UK builds on the work of leading film education charities FILMCLUB and First Light.
