Image for About


One of the most innovative youth film festivals in Europe, Glasgow Youth Film Festival (GYFF) will return for its 13th edition from 17 - 19 September 2021.

Each year, the festival is co-programmed by Glasgow Film and GYFF Young Programmers aged 15 to 19, who are mentored through a summer school. The programme annually presents an outstanding range of international films, special guest appearances, free-to-attend creative workshops for young people, and in 2019 launched our Careers in Film Day curated especially for S4-S6 pupils across Scotland.

GYFF was a great way to meet other people who are equally as obsessed with film, and to see things you definitely wouldn’t ordinarily. Working for the Youth Festival was perfect for transitioning into a Young Selector at Glasgow Film Festival 2020. You gain experience working in larger groups and are given the freedom to learn with your own smaller events. In many ways it primes your anticipation about the possibility of working for the festival one day.
