If you are interested in the film industry, then this festival is the one for you.
Teenage Kicks, the first film festival curated by Belmont Filmhouse Young Programmers, takes place until Sunday, December 2.
Young creatives and film lovers are invited to attend the unique festival, which will feature multiple public screenings as well as a film and TV careers panel with special guests on Saturday, December 1.
The panel will feature guests from Edinburgh International Film Festival, Outlander, media and entertainment trade union BECTU, indie studio Mine Horse Pictures and Netflix’s Scottish blockbuster, Outlaw King. The panellists will talk about how they started their careers, provide advice and answer any burning questions from young people who are interested in working in the film industry. Tickets for the event are free for anyone aged 15-25.
Four films were also selected to screen to Aberdeen film fans. Sing Street, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and Turkish drama Mustang will all feature.
Teenage Kicks will host Aberdeen City Council’s Year of Young People Showcase on Saturday, December 1, with free drop-in musical and theatrical performances, art workshops and creative writing sessions.
Belmont Filmhouse Young Programmers group, which only launched this year, brings together people aged 15-19 from across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire who share a passion for cinema and want to learn more about film curation.
A Young Programmers group member said: “This has been such a great experience for us, learning all about film programming and curating our very own film festival has been a lot of fun!
“Plus, we’ve become good friends in a short space of time, and can’t wait to see what the next chapter holds for us!”
