Screen Education Fund

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

Screen Education Fund

Screen education can take place in many different settings, such as schools, colleges and universities, teacher education programmes, cinemas and film festivals, libraries, film clubs, and media access centres.

Working with educators and screen access agencies, Screen Scotland aims to inspire and equip people across Scotland to be able to access, enjoy, understand, create, explore and share film and all other forms of the moving image throughout their lives, putting screen education where it belongs, at the heart of learning, life and work.

What is the purpose of the Screen Education Fund?

The Screen Education Fund, formally the Film Education Partnership Fund, has been designed to develop increased capabilities in screen education and supports programmes of work with the potential to achieve these outcomes.

Key strategic aims of this fund are to:

  • develop increased understanding of the potential of screen education
  • develop capabilities in screen education through greater connectivity and partnership working across different settings
  • support the development and growth of screen education access in currently underrepresented areas
  • support professional development in screen education knowledge and skills.

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

1.5° Film Challenge | Film Access Scotland
Scottish Youth Film Festival
D Fie Foe | Musselburgh B2B Film Project
Moving Image Network | North East Scotland College 
Film Education Journal
