Film Education Partnership Fund

Funding to increase access to film education provision in communities across Scotland.

The Film Education Partnership Fund is now closed to new applications. New Fund guidance and application forms will be published in April 2022.

Film education can take place in many different places or contexts, including - but not limited to - schools, colleges and universities, teacher education programmes, cinemas, film festivals, libraries, film clubs and societies, media access centres and workshops. However, this can sometimes take place in isolation from other work, limiting the sharing of expertise, resources and film education practitioners between different activities.  

We want to help change this, and therefore the key strategic aim of the Film Education Partnership Fund is to develop increased capabilities in film education, typically through greater connectivity and partnership working between film education organisations and practitioners, and professional development for the film education practitioners involved. This fund will support partnerships and collaborative programmes of work with the potential to achieve these outcomes.

Some projects we have funded in the past few years include:

Youth Climate Film Project | Keep Scotland Beautiful
Scottish Youth Film Festival
D Fie Foe | Musselburgh B2B Film Project
Moving Image Network | North East Scotland College
