  Edinburgh Film Festival Young Weekender 2021 [read more]
  With an emphasis on women filmmakers
  Cinemas may be closed but that hasn't stopped the Young Programmers at Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF) from their mission to connect young audiences with great films.

They are hosting an exciting online weekend of film from 26-28 February which includes a watch party series called Woman with a Movie Camera - featuring three landmark films from three iconic women film makers. They are also running a Film Course Showcase - designed to arm future film students with all they need to know about how and where to study film in Scotland.

All events are free. Each film is available on BFI Player, the BFI's streaming platform, which has a specially extended FREE trial (see the link). The Film Course Showcase will be broadcast live on YouTube and the film watch parties will be hosted on Instagram.

Audiences will be invited to join the watch parties on Friday 26 February at 7pm for the avant garde classic Daisies, directed by Vera Chytilová, on Saturday at 7pm for the ground-breaking and genre defying classic The Watermelon Woman, directed by Cheryl Dunye and on Sunday at 2pm for the final film from the inspirational Agnès Varda, Varda By Agnès. Each film will be introduced by an EIFF Youth young programmer.

The Film Course Showcase will be shown live on YouTube on Saturday 27 February from 2pm - 4pm. In addition to presentations, there will be opportunities for potential students to ask questions in the live Q&A.

EIFF Youth aims to be accessible to everyone. Films have closed captions and the Film Course Showcase will have subtitles and BSL interpretation. All films are available on the BFI Player Subscription service, which is offering a special extension to the free 14 day trial (and then is £4.99 a month). EIFF Youth is making some data bursaries available to support young people who might need free data dongles to take part in the screenings and events.
