YOUNG film fans (11-18) have until tomorrow (Tuesday 13th July) to apply to charity Into Film Scotland to join the Youth Advisory Council.
The YAC was still thriving during the lockdown, offering its members unique experiences during that time, such as interviewing legendary Bond producer Barbara Broccoli from her New York home, as well as publishing their film reviews of new, classic and archive films online. .
They have also digitally connected with other young film buffs in Scotland and across the UK, exchanging ideas with YAC members in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Children and young people are at the center of everything Into Film does, says the charity.
To ensure that young people’s opinions and voices are heard, it established the Into Film Youth Advisory Council, where passionate young people aged 11-18 can come together to provide feedback on everything from the film catalog to the teaching materials of the charity.
They also participate in competitions and are involved in the annual Into Film Festival.
The charity also develops skills and inspires young people involved by giving them the opportunity to learn about the international, national and regional film industry and the career opportunities available in film.
The Scottish YAC members have also been involved as judges at the Scottish Youth Film Festival, where they watch all the films that entered the competition and work together to determine the winning films. They also have the option of awarding the prizes to the winners of each category, which takes place both in person and online.
One councilor said: “I would encourage anyone with an interest in film to apply. Over the past two years, we’ve written movie reviews, watched movies, and I’ve made so many friends.”
Apply until Tuesday 13 July at: www.intofilm.org
