In 2018, Scotland's Year of Young People, EIFF’s entire education programme is now all under our expanded new strand, The Young & the Wild.


The Young & the Wild is a packed programme of events for young audiences, students, schools and families including film screenings, workshops, masterclasses and other learning opportunities.

Find out about our New Visions Short Film Competition, our popular schools' programme, our life-long learning events, and our opportunities for 15-25 year-olds considering or furthering a career in the industry.

The Young & the Wild is supported by EventScotland, as part of Scotland's Year of Young People 2018 celebrations, and Baillie Gifford.
