Screen Education Edinburgh is a partnership between the City of Edinburgh Council, Children and Families Arts & Creative Learning team and SEE SCIO.
We began as Pilton Video in 1981, developing people, organisations and the community through film education and production, exclusively in North Edinburgh until 1995, with the org becoming an Edinburgh wide resource, before a rebranding to become Screen Education Edinburgh in 2011.
North Edinburgh born novelist, playwright, storyteller and screenwriter, Irvine Welsh became patron of Screen Education Edinburgh in March 2014.
Screen Education Edinburgh’s main base in the community of North Edinburgh. Our building was previously shared with Pilton Arts and the Craigroyston School House facility, which educated vulnerable pupils for 20 years.
Today, all six flats of the building are utilised to develop our learners, including office space, multiple Avid edit suites, a dedicated learning suite, training, workshop, screening space, a dedicated mini film studio and youth drop in facility.
