Youth Advisory Council Applications Open

Applications for our Youth Advisory Council are open

Our Youth Advisory Council (YAC) is a space for passionate young people aged between 10 and 18 to come together and provide feedback on Into Film's work and take part in fun, film-related activities - and applications are now open!

By joining our Youth Advisory Council, young people will not only get the chance to meet like-minded peers but can also enhance their future employability. Some employers and further education establishments appreciate when young people have been involved with extracurricular activities, as this can show enthusiasm and initiative, and it always looks great on CVs. Becoming an active member of our Youth Advisory Council will help members develop the skills, confidence and experience that employers and education settings look for. Plus, members will get a chance to learn more about screen careers and further develop their interest in something they're already passionate about - the world of film and the screen industries! 

And of course, members of the YAC will have the opportunity to have their voices heard, helping us find out exactly what young people think, and shaping our future offer.

We encourage all young people aged 10-18 who are passionate about film to apply. If that's you, then please download the application form below! And if you're an educator that works with young people in that age bracket, please pass this opportunity on to them and help them take advantage of a fun, valuable and unique experience.

It's the things that you develop whether that's interviewing or reviewing films, being a part of a film jury; they are all unique skills that demonstrate you know, unique abilities and assets to you as an individual and can be an outstanding factor when it comes to applying for future work or education.
