YOUNG people are to be brought together to discover how film can be used to help them learn, increase literacy and develop creativity.

The Into Film Festival, which runs until November 23, uses the magic of movies to engage young minds in a broad range of topics.

In its sixth year, it welcomed nearly half a million primary and secondary pupils and their teachers in 2017.

It has returned to Northern Ireland at more than 90 events in 34 different venues ranging from cinemas, a farm and Queen's University Sonic Lab.

"The festival is an exciting opportunity to bring young people together to explore the best movies and to show how film can be used as an excellent educational tool to help children learn, increase literacy and develop their creativity," said Sean Kelly of Into Film in Northern Ireland.
