I cannot recommend the course enough – the excellent standards of teaching ensured the material was always challenging and exciting at the same time, inspiring me to continue and expand my study of film making.” – Participant, 2018

Applications for our Moving Image Arts programme are still open!

Moving Image Arts is an Applied Subject which examines the history, techniques and creative impact of film and equips students to make their own films, informed by that knowledge and those skills. It’s an ideal way to take your passion for film and develop it even further.


The qualification is developed and accredited by the Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) in Northern Ireland.

I took the course in my sixth year of school and learnt valuable skills in both the practical and theoretical side of film making. It helped me get into my first choice University (Napier) to study Film and has helped me progress with the skills it provided. A really great course for those wanting to explore and study film more than a general media course would provide.” – Participant, 2018

Funded by Creative Scotland we have delivered the qualification to young people aged 16 to 21 from Edinburgh & Lothians since 2015 and we are running the course again in Autumn 2019.


The course involves the study of 2 units, with each student completing a portfolio of work including a short film, whilst studying towards and completing an exam, focusing on the history, techniques and theory of film.

Progression towards Film & TV study at further and higher education is a key aim for many students each year, whilst others use the skills and knowledge gained to progress towards entry level roles in film, TV and the wider creative industries.


“Without this course I would not have able to secure a place studying film-making at university at Screen Academy Scotland, or a place abroad at Brooklyn College’s film department. Moving Image Arts is the perfect course for any young aspiring filmmakers who wish to take that next step towards their passion.” – Participant 2016
