YOUNG FILMS FOUNDATION
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 the country’s up-and-coming film talents: a week’s residency on the island that offers new screenwriters the opportunity to nurture their gifts under the guidance and mentorship of some of the leading names in the UK film and television industry.
The programme comes with the sponsorship of Screen Scotland, Highlands and Islands Enterprise, MG Alba, Sabhal Mòr Ostaig and local business, and is endorsed by the powerhouse partnership of Film4 and Channel 4.
The awe-inspiring backdrop to Young Films’ groundbreaking Gaelic drama series Bannan, is now also the focus for the Foundation’s quest for Scotland’s film-makers of the future.
