SEE Young Filmmakers Hub

Screen Education Edinburgh (SEE) is proud to partner with the Sean Connery Foundation to deliver the SEE Young Filmmakers Hub.

Aimed at those aged 12-18 living in Edinburgh, the Hub offers young people the opportunity to learn the art of filmmaking, regardless of their circumstances. During this practical course, learners will gain experience of working in a variety of filmmaking roles. From sound and lighting design to cinematography and directing, the Hub provides valuable hands-on training in all aspects of filmmaking, allowing young people the chance to discover new interests and strengths.  

Working in groups learners will be tasked with developing, shooting and editing their very own narrative short film. Through this course, we seek to empower young people to create their own ideas and tell stories that are meaningful to them, gaining self-confidence and fostering good teamwork skills in a welcoming and inclusive environment.
