Aimed at under 12s, the workshop will walk you through the steps of creating a stop motion animation using upcycled materials and equipment you can find at home. Come along for a friendly educational session covering the possibilities of animation and how we can be creative and convey our love for our planet using our own hands!

  • 13:00 – 14:30 Panel – Addressing Inequality in Film Exhibition: Talent Development Schemes in Scotland (14+ years)

with Theo Panagopoulos, Xuanlin Tham & Christopher Kumar

Interested in kickstarting your career in film exhibition and curation but don’t know where to start? Hear from former participants of FEDS and New Promoters schemes about their experiences and advice for future applicants.

In a recent BFI study, statistics showed that just 4% of employees in film exhibition are from Black, Asian and ethnically diverse backgrounds (compared to 13% in the general population) and less than 5% consider themselves to have a disability (compared to 11% in the general population). But what systems are in place to tackle this under-representation in the film exhibition sector and how can we ensure they promote lasting change? Join Theo Panagopoulos (New Promoters, Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival), Xuanlin Tham (New Promoters, Take One Action & EIFF Young Critics) and Christopher Kumar (FEDS, Glasgow Film Festival) as they share their experiences.


  • 15:30 – 17:30 Workshop – The Shapes of You with Dan Castro (14+ years)

What would you look like if you were an animated character? More importantly –what would you feel like?

Award-winning Animation Director, Illustrator and Designer Dan Castro spends an awful lot of time making characters out of simple shapes and telling stories about mental health. Come and learn a bit about him, his process and why making simple things is a great way to talk about complicated subjects. Then cut, stick and doodle some characters – based on you – to tell your own stories!


  • 18:30 – 20:00 Film Programme 6 – Waves of Kinship (14+ years)

A sensitive investigation into the fluctuating relationships between Being, both human and nonhuman. Here we provide a platform for recognising the joy and difficulties we face from existing in our inter-webbed networks.
