Are you aged between 18-21?

Do you want to learn about film programming?

Would you enjoy running your own film screening event?

Maybe you could be one of our Young Selectors for Glasgow Film Festival 2022!

What is it?

    • Free Industry pass for GFF 2022

    • Bespoke careers session from the Glasgow Film team

    • Certificate and written reference upon completion of the programme (subject to attendance and commitment levels)
