Edinburgh International Film Festival - Youth Advisory Group

Aged 19-25? Love films? Want to get involved with the world's longest continually-running film festival? Edinburgh International Film Festival is now looking for a small team of young adults, aged 19-25, to join their Youth Advisory Group for their EIFF Youth strand.

EIFF Youth is committed to programming a diverse selection of screenings and events for young audiences interested in filmmaking and the moving image industries.

Youth Advisory Group participants will help design EIFF’s youth events and advise on how EIFF can get more young adults involved with the festival. Participants will also curate the EIFF Youth New Visions Short Film Competition – open to all young filmmakers in Scotland. Shortlisted films will be screened at EIFF, with the Youth Advisory Group closely involved with the screenings and award ceremonies. Acting as figureheads for EIFF Youth strand, group members will also get to co-host events at the Festival.

The Youth Advisory Group will meet at Filmhouse in Edinburgh regularly from Spring 2020, and for the twelve days of the Festival in June. Participants will receive a Student Delegate Pass which allows access to Press screenings and Industry events.

Travel expenses will be reimbursed for participants outside of Edinburgh City.
