OUR ISLAND STORIES

Are you aged 12 – 25 years and living on a Scottish island? 

Are you interested in:

  • Film making, documentary, animation, and journalism 
  • Gaining tools to get your message and ideas across 
  • Boosting your skills and experience 
  • Working with other young islanders 

 If so, Our Island Stories is for you! 

The Scottish Islands Federation has teamed up with Screen Argyll and is offering young people across the islands the chance to learn new skills, get hands-on filmmaking experience, work with other young islanders, and share stories of island life. 

You will take part in online sessions with film makers and the programme will culminate in the first ever Island Youth Film Festival!
