Article: Into Film: Programming ideas for families, children and young people

Cinemas are re-opening, but it is still the summer holidays. As such, Into Film have created a curated list of titles which may prove useful for BFI FAN venues to consult in reference to upcoming programming to attract children, families and young audiences as they begin to return to cinemas across the UK.

The list is comprised of titles exclusively selected from the FDA free-to-book Relaunching Cinema: Content for Recovery document, with five suggestions for each age group of 5-7, 7-11, 11-14, 14-16 and 16-19 audiences. All titles have an accompanying free Into Film guide (available on to provide context and provoke further discussion.

The list is in no way exhaustive or definitive but is intended to provide an accessible starting point for members looking for specific guidance on how to reach young and family audiences. All titles are seen as strong and relevant by Into Film, tackle a range of subjects, with the majority having an independent or specialised focus.
