As in-person screenings and events return to Glasgow Film Festival 2022, so does the popular Schools programme! GFF Schools Week, now GFF Schools Month, will take place in February and offers an exciting and varied programme of screenings, workshops and events throughout the month, aimed at primary and secondary school students.

Workshops

GFF Schools Month 2022 will feature six exciting workshops to inspire and give students a taste of what a career in filmmaking might look like. From animation workshops, to pitching sessions, and insights into how subjects like maths can provide transferrable skills for the career of an Assistant Director, there is something for everyone. For those interested in documentary filmmaking, Duncan Cowles will return and lead two workshops on this topic during the 2022 edition.

Below are the full listings of the 2022 line-up. For more info about each specific event and participant age suitability, visit the GFT Education website.
