We are proud to present the inaugural Film Schools Day, in partnership with the Scottish Creative Media Network. Students of five Scottish institutions will present their work to an international industry panel, who will offer immediate feedback and present awards at the end of the day. With a networking lunch, this will be a unique opportunity for Scottish film students to meet their peers and learn from one another’s work.
