Screen Education Edinburgh is a charity dedicated to transforming lives through the medium of film, developing young people, new talent and independent filmmakers. Our programmes operate across Edinburgh and South East Scotland, with a special focus on disadvantaged communities, teaching filmmaking and digital media skills, whilst fostering confidence, self-esteem and a strong team ethic.
For our young participants we provide a range of filmmaking projects, starting with our Cashback for Creativity programme, including tasters and access projects, then progressing onto ‘Introduction to Film’ and ‘Next Steps’ projects. From there participants can move onto our more advanced courses, including ‘BFI Film Academy’ and 'Moving Image Arts’, ensuring a true ladder of progression & development for participants and providing a strong portfolio of work and qualifications for progression to further & higher education, and the film & TV industries.
Adult learners are supported through our Life Long Learning programme, whilst new talent and independent filmmakers benefit from our film schemes, professional development courses, low cost equipment hire and our events and screening forum for independent filmmakers ‘Write Shoot Cut’.
Through our in-house filmmaking and film training expertise we are also able to provide bespoke training and learning projects, as well as high quality film productions, for festival release, broadcast, the third and public sectors.
In an average year our programmes engage with 800 participants across the region and at our base in North Edinburgh. Accredited learning is available through Arts Award, the NCFE BFI/ Skillset ‘Preparing to work in the Film Industry’ qualification and the Moving Image Arts GCSE & A Level, with 130 qualifications being awarded on an annual basis.
