Are you aged 15-19 and passionate about cinema? Would you like to learn more about contemporary European cinema and try your hand at curating, writing about and presenting films at the Edinburgh International Film Festival in June 2018?
EIFF Young Programmers meet at Filmhouse every Monday from November to April, and for the twelve days of the Festival in June. CMI (incorporating Filmhouse & EIFF) is one of four partner organisations in the Young Programmers activity of Moving Cinema, a youth film education programme funded by Creative Europe. Moving Cinema allows you to discover great European films and present four titles at Filmhouse from January to April. Other Moving Cinema groups in Barcelona, Vilnius and Lisbon will similarly be presenting their selections at their local cinemas.
For EIFF, Young Programmers curate a programme of short films and recommend their favourite new films at the Festival – badged as 'The Young and the Wild'. They also help to shape and host various events at EIFF Youth Hub. Previous Young Programmers have written copy for Festival publications, hosted Q&As with visiting filmmakers and worked as part of a team to present exciting new cinema for other young people. Young Programmers receive a Student Delegate Pass which allows access to Press screenings and Industry events.
The first meeting for the 2017-18 Young Programmers group will be on Monday 6 November.
