Apply to be a GYFF21 Young Programmer

2019’s Glasgow Youth Film Festival featured a record number of admissions, 13 events and a video message from Scott Pilgrim Vs the World director, Edgar Wright! And, even in the times of COVID, our Youth Board put together an amazing weekend with GYFF Presents 2020. Now we need you to create an amazing GYFF 2021 experience.

Glasgow Youth Film Festival is an annual festival programmed by 15–19-year-olds. We are now open to applications from young people who are either at a Glasgow City Council school or currently unemployed. No experience is required but an interest in film is essential. Applications close on Monday 1 March 2021.

If selected for GYFF, Young Programmers will have the chance to learn:

  • Film programming and how film festivals work
  • Marketing skills to ensure their festival reaches an amazing audience
  • Events planning to make sure that Q&As, workshops and events all run smoothly
  • And lots more!

It's a great opportunity to learn some new skills and meet people who share a love of film.
