Moving Image Arts

Moving Image Arts is an AS level that looks in depth at film technique, history and lets students apply this to their own film.

Screen Education Edinburgh have a strong record in the delivery of the course, with 64% of students on the course here going on to study film in Further and Higher education, and others finding places in the industry. We believe that this is a tremendous opportunity where students are guaranteed to make their own films.

The course is free and open to anyone between the ages of 16 and 21 in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas, and we have several final spaces remaining on the course before it begins on Tuesday 1 October. Students are not required to have made a film before, but an interest would be useful.

Check out their website for more information and the application forms: https://screen-ed.org/moving-image-arts/

Edinburgh Crisis Centre – Charity Auction Appeal

Edinburgh Crisis Centre is based in Leith.  We are a mental health charity supporting Edinburgh residents aged 16 years and over who are in mental health distress. We are the only crisis centre in Scotland that provides 24hr support via phone, email and text as well as offering face to face support.  Additionally, we have accommodation for people at risk of suicide where they can stay for up to a week in a safe environment and receive support from safe 24hrs a day.

Being a charity we rely on fundraising events in order to keep improving the environment of the centre and to make it as safe and relaxed as possible for people visiting the centre. With previous fundraising events we have been able to install a new kitchen and start an art group and writing group which we have recently won an ‘Inspiring Edinburgh’ award for our willing and able volunteers.

We are looking for donations of artwork.  We are looking to hold a charity auction at the end of the year and an item such as this would be gratefully received.
