"The 50 Films you should see by the age of 14 was a list collated by the BFI in 2005 to inspire young people to watch as wide a variety of great films as great books and art. More than 70 international film educators, producers, teachers, authors and critics contributed films that included family classics and Hollywood hits and beyond.

Now BFI Education has collaborated with Into Film to update the 2005 list, adding 15 streamable films. We’ve broadened it with some wonderful new ideas, speaking to timeless and universal issues around growing up but also reflecting contemporary themes that have become increasingly relevant to young audiences. All but a few films come with age recommendations, streaming links and Learning Resources, and below are some further groupings to help get you started:"
