What we do Testimonials Young People CHRISTINA MCNULTY – FILMHOUSE CASHBACK INTRO "It was the best feeling ever seeing our film being screened in the cinema" SAM MORWOOD – FOTA CASHBACK NEXT STEPS "My aspirations after this course are to do further training and make more films" ALASTAIR OSBORNE– HIPPODROME SILENT FILM PROJECT "The mentors were great at building my confidence.

HARRY JOHNSON – FIFE CASHBACK FILM INTRO "I found the course amazing! Not only did it bring people with the same interest together but it was great fun. It gave me a load of knowledge and plenty of skills. It’s also made me feel more confident and eager to make more films! I would highly recommend the course for anyone who’s interested in the film industry and wanting experience in it." GREGOR FELL – CASHBACK FOR CREATIVITY FIFE INTRO "The course that I participated in helped me in various ways, not only did it enlighten me about the industry of media and film making but it allowed me to gain new skills which are easily applicable to the school’s curriculum and my own personal projects. I have gained many friends from the project and had a lot of fun producing our short Film. I would highly recommend the course to anybody who is offered the opportunity." LIAM BOYD – BFI FILM ACADEMY SCOTLAND RESIDENTIAL "Without the residential I wouldn’t be where I’m at now. The residential gave me the opportunity to get hands on experience with equipment for filming and teaching that I couldn’t find anywhere else. It also provided me with the experience that allowed me to go on and create my own films and progress to university. One of the best things about the program was the friends and connections I made. Even after the residential you’ll still meet up with those on the course and better yet, you’ll go on to work on their future projects and they will return the favour. I can safely say that without the course I would not be studying film at university and would not have anywhere near as good a network of filmmakers I can call on for support. Thanks BFI and all the team at Screen Ed!" LAUREN MCALLEN – BFI FILM ACADEMY HIGHLANDS "Being given the opportunity to direct my story and receive constructive criticism was my biggest personal achievement" TOM HUNTER– BFI FILM ACADEMY HIGHLANDS "The best thing was how much hands-on work we did" LIA CAMPBELL– BFI FILM ACADEMY SCOTLAND RESIDENTIAL "Getting to know people who are similarly minded and learning all about the industry was the best parts of the course" RANNY HASOON – BFI FILM ACADEMY EDINBURGH RESIDENTIAL "I have learned that it is important to get a wide understanding of all roles within film production" ALBERT LUCAS – BFI FILM ACADEMY HIGHLANDS "The tutoring was the best part because they made it sound interesting and amazing."
