Praise For The Festival
“Professional, heartwarming and planting seeds for the future in so many ways.” - Tim Flood, Filmmaker
“This is a great film festival for young people, it does not try to be grand or exclusive. It encourages all the young people it can reach, to take part and learn something or take something positive away.” - Lee Vann Wakelin, Filmmaker
“All the young people I've worked with, whose films have featured in the festival, really get a lot out of taking part. Well done to everyone involved in making this a highlight of the year in film education in Scotland.” - Kevin Cameron, Filmmaker
First class. Not just a film festival. Two days crammed full of lots of young film students taking advantage of high quality workshops prior to the awards. Brilliant idea.” - Graham Kitchener, Filmmaker
