For centuries, the Isle of Skye has been an inspiration to painters, to poets and to musicians, as well as the thousands of annual visitors. 

The Young Films Foundation is now aiming to inspire and seek out Scotland’s up-and-coming screenwriting talent.

YFF21 is a year-long scriptwriting programme, with a week’s residency on the island. We hope for applications for YFF23 to open in mid-2023.


Supported by major broadcasters and leading names in the UK and film and television industry, it offers new screenwriters the opportunity to write a script commissioned by and guided by a broadcaster.

The programme is a powerhouse partnership between Young Films, Screen Scotland, Channel 4 Nations and Regions, Channel 4 Drama, Channel 4 Comedy, Film4, BBC Drama, BBC Films, Sky (TV), MG Alba/BBC Alba, Torabhaig Distillery and Sabhal Mòr Ostaig.


The Isle of Skye is the awe-inspiring backdrop to Young Films’ groundbreaking Gaelic drama series Bannan, and is now also the focus for the Foundation’s quest for Scotland’s film-makers of the future.
