We are busy shaping our plans for 2021! Keep an eye out for the latest updates. 

This special strand, aimed at audiences aged 15-25, ran from 20-29th June 2019. Events took place at the EIFF YOUTH HQ, based at the Cornerstone Centre, at St John's Church at the bottom of Lothian Road.  The HQ is the place to explore the world of film. There were great opportunities to take part in in special careers advice sessions, expert masterclasses with leading filmmakers, and hands-on workshops covering a range of skills and industry departments.
