About Fans Youth Film Festival

This year, FANS Youth Film Festival will take place at Summerhall, Edinburgh in November. The Festival celebrates and showcases the work of young filmmakers across three days of screenings, workshops and talks.

Venue: Red Lecture Theatre

FYFF is an amazing showcase of the the best Scottish Youth made short film - we have chosen 34 films to show in 6 progammes over the festival weekend, and have a wide range of practical workshops, networking opportunities and discussion events all aimed at young people aged 16 to 25.

DIY Film making is a defining theme of this year’s festival, and we are excited to welcome Bill Forsyth and his original DIY Feature ‘That Sinking Feeling’ to open the festival on Friday night. We are also screening Karen Gillan's directorial debut 'The Party's Just Beginning' and Karen will be joining us via Skype for a post screening discussion.

We have created this festival driven by a love of film and we hope to be able to share some of that passion with you.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Fans Youth Film Festival are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
