Edinburgh University MSC Film, Exhibition and Curation students teamed up with EIFF Festival Director, Chris Fujiwara, to create short film programmes from the Creative Skillset Film Academies (Screen Academy Scotland, National Film & Television School, London Film School).These programmes showcase new talent in creative storytelling on a journey of self-discovery, finding their style and cinematic voice.
Following the final screening, The Heart of the Matter at the Filmhouse, we invite all EIFF delegates, Screen Academy, LFS and NFTS students, staff, alumni and guests to join us for the filmmaker awards, followed by networking drinks and nibbles on the terrace at Dance Base, a short walk away in the historic Old Town. The winning film from each strand, having received the majority of votes from our student jury, as well as the overall winning film, will be awarded a cash prize towards the filmmaker’s next project.
