Film Schools Day 2019

In partnership with the Creative Media Network Scotland and the UWS Creative Media Academy we proudly presented the second Film Schools Day at Glasgow Short Film Festival on Thursday 14 March 2019. Students of five Scottish institutions presented their work to one another, and to an international industry panel, who offered immediate feedback and presented a handful of awards at the end of the day. With a networking lunch, this was a unique opportunity for Scottish film students to meet their peers and learn from one another’s work.

PANELLISTS:
Sarah Dombrink (Acquisition Manager for interfilm Short Film Sales & Distribution, Berlin)
Leslie Hills (producer, Skyline Productions, Edinburgh)
Wouter Jansen (festival strategy and distribution, Some Shorts, Nijmegen)

THE PARTICIPATING INSTITUTIONS:
Edinburgh College of Art BA and MA Animation
