Aged 15-19 and passionate about cinema?
Become a Belmont Young Programmer!
Young Programmers are a group of 15-19 year olds with a real passion for film. Meeting weekly they work together to select, promote and host films for Belmont Filmhouse and the Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF).
This year we are working with pupils from Northfield Academy. Every two weeks, they meet with our Education and Learning team to watch films, learn about film programming and how to plan and promote exciting screening events.
The Young Programmers will be delivering their next project at Belmont Filmhouse in March, so keep your eyes on our social media!
Many of our young programmers go on to study film and media and work in the industry. Why not check out our EIFF Youth 2021 highlights reel here - it was made by former Young Programmer, Dylan-Starr Adams.
