If you’re aged 15-19, passionate about cinema and would like to learn about curating, writing about and presenting films at a prestigious film festival, then Young Programmers is for you.
EIFF Young Programmers is an excellent opportunity for young people who are serious about film to take part in a well-established, vibrant and innovative film festival.
Young Programmers meet at Filmhouse, Edinburgh, every Monday from mid-September to April, and for the twelve days of the Festival. We watch and discuss a wide range of films and learn about film programming.
Young Programmers have curated a programme of short films and watched and recommended new films for the Festival. Previous Young Programmers have written copy for Festival publications, hosted Q&As with visiting filmmakers and worked as part of a team to present exciting new cinema for other young people. All participants have an opportunity to meet filmmakers and industry professionals using their EIFF student pass, which gives access to industry events, press and industry screenings and lots of other great events and benefits. In return, we ask that participants to show commitment and enthusiasm and provide us with a review of their experiences at EIFF.
If you would like to become a Young Programmer with us, please register your interest by emailing email@example.com. We will be accepting new applications from September 2019, so please let us know if you would like to be considered for the 2019/20 team!
