Screen­ings en­cour­age young to get Into Film

Perthshire Advertiser - - THE TICKET -

Perth and Aber­feldy are ben­e­fit­ing from this year’s Into Film Fes­ti­val, set to in­spire the next gen­er­a­tion.

A range of unique screen­ings and events has been ar­ranged for five to19 year-olds from now un­til Novem­ber 24. It’s the world’s big­gest youth film fes­ti­val with all screen­ings and events put on for free.

Each film screened in the fes­ti­val is ac­com­pa­nied by tai­lored ed­u­ca­tion re­sources which align with the na­tional syl­labus, can be freely down­loaded from the Into Film web­site and be dis­cussed back in the class­room.

This year the Perthshire Play­house and the Birks Cin­ema in Aber­feldy along­side Perthshire schools are again tak­ing part in the fes­tiv­i­ties.

The Birks in Aber­feldy is screen­ing ‘Hid­den Fig­ures’, about the be­hindthe-scenes per­son­al­i­ties in­volved in the Apollo space mis­sions on Novem­ber 15 and ‘Aladdin’ is on Novem­ber 22 at 2.30pm.

In Perth, the Play­house screened Tron yes­ter­day and to­day, Novem­ber 14 there is a must-see screen­ing and talk about cli­mate change.

Hid­den Fig­ures tells the story of the fe­male math­e­ma­ti­cians and en­gi­neers be­hind the Apollo space mis­sion

‘An In­con­ve­nient Se­quel: Truth to Power with Cli­mate Re­al­ity Lead­ers’ will run along­side a talk from a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the or­gan­i­sa­tion that Al Gore set up in 2006 fol­low­ing the ground-break­ing ini­tial film.

Hot on the heels of this is ‘Bal­le­rina’, shown on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 15.

The Into Film Fes­ti­val has been em­braced by Perth Play­house, where gen­eral man­ager Cathy Mo­ran said: “It gives kids a chance to ex­pe­ri­ence some­thing spe­cial they might not oth­er­wise en­counter.

“The ef­fect of see­ing movies on the big screen can’t be un­der­es­ti­mated.”

A broad range of cre­ative topics have been ex­plored through the Young Indies project.

At the Birks over the course of yes­ter­day and to­day, 24 films made by young peo­ple get an ex­clu­sive bigscreen de­but. The young­sters got to ask real film-mak­ers, sent by the BFI, ques­tions about get­ting started.

The com­pe­ti­tion to de­cide which is best is run on Sun­day, Novem­ber 19, when a jury looks at the en­tries from fu­ture film-mak­ers who took part in the Young Indies work­shops held in Aber­feldy dur­ing Septem­ber.
