Open to students at UK schools, colleges and universities, our Student Critics Competition enables aspiring writers to attend the film festival as critics and develop their skills with professional mentors.
Our Student Critics scheme aims to support the next generation of film journalists, offering experience, skills and networking opportunities to students with a passion for cinema.
Student Critics attend screenings, receptions and events at EIFF. They are mentored by professional film journalists, creating articles throughout their time at EIFF (21 - 26 June).
Entries will open for our next EIFF Student Critics Competition in Spring 2018 – keep an eye on the EIFF website and social media channels for more news.
