BAFTA Scotland To Run Scottish Students On Screen

Scottish Screen has announced that BAFTA Scotland will now run Scottish Students on Screen, the successful project which showcases the work of Scotland’s student filmmakers and introduces them to the industry.
Scottish Students on Screen was set up by Scottish Screen seven years ago, and is now delegating responsibility and resources to BAFTA Scotland to manage the programme.
Scottish Students on Screen fits well with BAFTA Scotland’s remit to recognise Scottish screen talent through the BAFTA Scotland Awards while also allowing BAFTA Scotland to extend this work into the further and higher education sector, fostering stronger links with the next generation of screen talent.
Alison Forsyth, Director of BAFTA Scotland said: “For the past eight years, BAFTA Scotland has kept a strong focus on the young and new talent areas of Scotland’s Screen industry. By joining forces with Scottish Students on Screen we are consolidating the work of promoting young talent with an important annual event. Scottish Students on Screen has taken some vital steps in terms of forging very strong links between education and the industry. BAFTA Scotland also has an educational remit and we will look forward to developing our partnership successfully for the benefit of Scotland’s future film, programme and media creators.”
Ken Hay, Chief Executive of Scottish Screen said: “Scottish Students on Screen has been a huge success since its inception seven years ago. It brings together emerging screen talent and recognises excellence from across Scotland. The move to BAFTA Scotland makes perfect sense and will allow Scottish Students on Screen to develop further in the years to come.”
This move is part of Scottish Screen’s remit as the strategic body responsible for developing the screen sector in Scotland. We will continue to support Scottish Students on Screen through our partner BAFTA Scotland.
The next edition of Scottish Students on Screen will be managed by BAFTA Scotland and will be held on March 30, 2007. A call for entries will be announced shortly with a closing date of December 18, 2006.
