About Us


The Scottish Youth Film Festival is funded by  National Lottery Young Start  to provide a youth film festival for the years 2015 and 2016 as well as engaging young people in practical film making projects.

That’s what we do.

What we are about is helping young people to use the medium of film to promote themselves, their stories and their ambitions. We aim to encourage aspiration and help those who might want to undertake a career in film, television or gaming – whether that be in front of the camera or behind it.

Films are made by people just like us and now that the technology is growing ever more accessible everyone can tell their story.

SYFF celebrates those stories and gives young people a platform for sharing them with the world.
