The Festival

The 8th Scottish Youth Film Festival will take place in Dumfries from 21st - 23rd October 2022.

We open on Friday night with a special screening of Tremors at the Robert Burns Centre at 6pm.


On Saturday 22nd, it’s the day for 13-19 year olds and we’ll have workshops, panels, screenings and the Award ceremony. We’ll be joined by social media star Miss PunnyPenny, Director John McPhail (Anna and the Apocalypse), actors Rachael Keiller (Edie, River City) and Andy Rothney (The Matrix Resurrections, The Undeclared War), as well as many other special guests.

On Sunday, we’ll be focusing on the 12 and under age range with lots of hands on film making activities, zombie make up, animation, screenings and the Awards.

It’s all free and we’d love to see you there.
