Glasgow Film Theatre and Eden Court in Inverness have joined forces with Glasgow Short Film Festival and GMAC Film to deliver the inaugural year of the Young Scottish Filmmakers Prize, supported by the BFI Film Academy (awarding funds from the National Lottery) and the Gannochy Trust and in association with BFI Film Academy SCENE.

The competition is open to young filmmakers aged 18-25, and judged by festival programmers and a jury of young people. We present the shortlisted films in two programmes, and the winners will be announced at the closing awards on Sunday 27 March.

This second programme showcases shortlisted films by filmmakers who have completed a film with support, whether from university or college, an organisation like GMAC Film, a programme like BFI Film Academy or who have received funding or technical assistance.
