From September to April, and for the twelve days of the Festival in June, our Young Programmers work together to curate films for Filmhouse and for the Film Festival, and co design the programme, the promotion and the delivery of their screening events.

Youth Hub EIFF young programmers

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 with us.

The first meeting for the 2018-19 Young Programmers will be on 24th September 2018, following on from our information sessions held on Monday 10 September and 17 September.

All  meetings are at Filmhouse and start at 4.30pm. Why not come along, meet the team and find out what's involved?
