We are very excited that SFW and IntoFilm Festival are coming together again in 2021 to offer school groups to enjoy fabulous film, and we will once again be screening at MAST - Mayflower Studios on Guildhall Square in Southamptpon.
The Into Film Festival is a free, annual, nationwide celebration of film & education for 5-19 year olds. It helps educators bring learning to life for 5-19 year olds across the UK by inspiring young people to watch, understand and make film in new and creative ways.
We are offering 2 films this year Minari (2020), with an age guide of 14+ and Mary and the Witch's Flower (2018) with an age guide of 5 - 11.
Please note that booking for this event is through IntoFilm only.
Set in the 1980s, a Korean family sets up a farming business in Southern America.
The American Dream and its wavering promise is experienced through the perspective of a Korean family of four who set up a farm in Arkansas. Set in the 1980s, the film follows the struggles of parents Monica and Jacob as they face the challenges of providing for their family in a world that is hostile to immigrants alongside their disintegrating marriage. Their struggles are further reflected in the youngest in the family, the curious David, who tries to make sense of his Korean-American identity when their eccentric grandmother Soon-ja comes to live with them. Loosely based on director Lee Isaac Chung’s childhood, Minari is an intimate and intricate look at family, change and American society that explores the unique perspective of growing up as a first-generation immigrant.
Into Film will be strictly adhering to all current Covid-19 Government guidelines, with continuous monitoring of the Public Health guidance in each UK nation. Please visit the MAST website to check out their specific Covid-19 measures.
Places will be offered for free on a first-come, first-served basis, with attendance this year limited to one school group per event to help us to ensure the safety of all attendees and allow us to maximise the impact on the largest possible audience of children and young people across the UK.
There is a minimum booking size for each event at this year’s Festival. As each event will only have one group attending, we're encouraging schools to book as many seats as they can to ensure that as many young people as possible can benefit from the Festival. The exact minimum booking size for this event can be found on the booking form.
