WIN the Top 50 Must See Movies Before the Age of 11


The guide to the 50 films every child should see before they grow up has been created by film education charity Into Film, in partnership with the UK video industry, which will see all 50 films distributed by retailers this summer! As a family that loves great movies this is certainly exciting for us and we intend to watch one a day over the school holiday... there are currently just 8 from the list we haven't seen before so we're doing well.





Each film was measured against a series of metrics, from the impact of the movie on a child’s intellectual, educational and emotional development, through to suitability for family viewing plus overall entertainment and nostalgia factor. The judging panel, led by Into Film’s education and programming teams who specialise in curating film content and developing teaching resources for schools across the UK, narrowed down the selection of films to a shortlist of 250 from a catalogue of over 3,000 family movies.

The shortlist then lead to the final 50 films in the selection, which feature a range of past and current films that have been deemed to benefit child development and creativity. Our favourites from the list include Jumanji, How To Train Your Dragon and Matilda.



The list of 50 Must See Movies Before You Grow Up are revealed (in alphabetical order) is:

101 Dalmatians
Jumanji
The Gruffalo
A Little Princess
Kubo and the Two Strings
The Iron Giant
