Belmont Filmhouse Young Programmers are a group of 15 to 19 year olds with a real passion for film! Meeting weekly, together they curate films for Belmont Filmhouse and for the Edinburgh International Film Festival, and co design the programme, the promotion and the delivery of their screening events.
After the success of their first ever Young Programmers Film Festival – Teenage Kicks – in November/December 2018, the group are now focussing their attention on their part in the 73rd Edinburgh International Film Festival. Alongside the EIFF Young Programmers, the group are currently watching short films submitted to EIFF, and working towards curating a 90 minute programme of the best entries! The films will be screened at a special event at EIFF in June. This is a really exciting opportunity to work as part of the EIFF team to present exciting new cinema for other young people!
We hope to also hold another Young Programmers Film Festival at Belmont Filmhouse this year – watch this space!
Remember to look out for our Young Programmer Picks in our brochure, where they share with you the films that are on their must-see list.
