We are delighted to once again partner with City of Edinburgh Council and Screen Education Edinburgh to give young people across Edinburgh and the Lothians the chance to have their film selected for the Festival and screened alongside leading filmmakers. Now in its tenth year, the competition is open to all pupils in nursery, primary and secondary education. Work is viewed and selected by a Youth Jury who curate the programme and awards ceremony at the Festival in June.
