Outreach Work

As well as the Festival, each year we will be fund raising to run film projects for young people across Scotland. These film projects will be targeted to young people who don’t often get an opportunity like this. If you work with young people who you think might benefit from a film project and you think may fit our criteria, please get in touch with us and we’ll discuss with you how we can help make this happen.

Film projects can happen in school, youth groups, with young people in the care system and in many other settings. We work with the young people on the analysis of films in the first instance, taking them through the stages of how films are made and the roles of the different people involved. We then allow the young people to take control of the production and come up with a story, cast themselves in roles (both behind and in front of the camera) and then over a few days, the young people make their film. At the end of the process a screening is held celebrating their achievements.

Here are a couple of our favourites from the past few years.
