Submissions for the Change film contest have now closed.
Shortlisted films will be announced live at this year’s Scottish Youth Film Festival on 23rd October.
All shortlisted films will be screened at a Gala event during COP26 on November 7th, where the winners will be announced.
COP26 is coming to Glasgow in November and SYFF have partnered with the National Library of Scotland’s Moving Image Archive and ScottishPower to launch a film competition designed to give young Scots a voice at this historic event.
We want you to make a film on the theme of Change. How does climate change impact you? Have you changed your behaviour because of it? What do we need to change to ensure a greener future?
It’s up to you.
Shortlisted films will be announced at this year’s Scottish Youth Film Festival and winning films will receive their prizes at a special event to be held during COP26.
