We’re working with Edinburgh International Film Festival again this year on Youth Hub – a special strand of the festival aimed at 16-25 year olds who might be thinking about working towards a career in film, television or gaming. Youth Hub will pretty much take over Argyle House for 10 days this month with a full on programme of practical workshops, masterclasses and careers advice.
Last year over 300 young people joined us in multiple events presented by guests and partners, including Actor Neil Maskell from EIFF 2014 opening film Hyena, Academy-nominated animator Robert Kondo (The Dam Keeper) and Broadcaster and Actor Sanjeev Kohli at a BAFTA Scotland Careers event. There’s even more going on this year.
