Trailblazing Shorts

  • 90 mins

Glimpse the future, with our showcase of the hottest new filmmaking talent.

In association with Skillset, EIFF presents a dynamic showcase of film work from the UK's seven Skillset Screen Academies, featuring the work of our 2008 Trailblazers. Trailblazers are selected from the EIFF feature programme and from the Screen Academies' graduating classes: look out for the Trailblazers brochure to find out all about them. Films from last year's Trailblazing Shorts programme travelled to festivals all over the world, and were given their own showcase at April's Tribeca Film Festival in New York City.
