A high quality learning experience offering a pathway of progression in film for young people aged 10-24 living in areas of deprivation across Edinburgh
Cashback for Creativity is part of the Scottish Government’s CashBack for Communities initiative, managed by Creative Scotland which uses monies recovered through the Proceeds of Crime Act to benefit Scotland’s young people.
CashBack is a high quality learning experience offering a pathway of progression in film for young people aged 10-24 living in areas of deprivation across Edinburgh and Aberdeen that have little or no access to creative opportunities.
The programme also focuses on supporting those not in education, employment or training, those at risk of being excluded, those at risk of involvement in anti-social, offending or re-offending behaviour and young people affected by crime.
Young people are given a solid grounding in all aspects of filmmaking leading to short film production, including watching, understanding, screenwriting, cinematography, sound, directing, producing and editing, with the opportunity to gain an Arts Award qualifications at various levels.
Progression support towards further study and/or support into the workplace is at the heart of the programme for all learners.
