Help us make our films!

The Film Academy Edinburgh is a filmmaking school aimed at young people between the ages of 9 and 18.
Launched in 2018, it is the brainchild of Scottish filmmaker, Graham Kitchener, combining his passions for film with his love of teaching. The Film Academy Edinburgh has been developed as a valuable and enriching after school activity for all.
The students become movie makers from the word go! They make their own films, learning along the way from the expertise of experienced staff, and take part in specialist skills workshops lead by industry professionals. From screen writing to production, acting to editing, and more – students are encouraged to explore their own creativity, build confidence, and work collaboratively.


Help us make our films this year!
Each term the students make a collection of their own films, from small scale 'flash films' to fully developed award winning short films.
Your contributions would ensure the students can imagine and create their films without limits.
The money will go towards the latest production equipment and technology, finding the best locations for their films, paying industry professionals to pass on their expertise and passion to our students and help guarantee the future of The Film Academy Edinburgh.
It has been a difficult time for everyone and we know the impact it has had on our young people. The film industry has struggled and so has The Film Academy, but despite it all our students still created successful films during lockdown - some of which went on to win youth film festival awards. We couldn't be more proud of them.
The future of filmmaking...
Your contributions could spark the beginnings of a career within the film industry, giving young people the starting block they need.
Our team are incredibly passionate about ensuring The Film Academy Edinburgh continues and we thank you so much for any contributions made.
Help fund the future of film.
