ESFF 2017 YOUNG SCOTTISH SCREENWRITERS COMPETITION NOW OPEN

The Edinburgh Short Film Festival is delighted to announce a new competition we’re holding aimed at young, Scottish-based screenwriters which we’re hoping will give our talented film creatives a leg up into the industry!

We’re working with the Matthew Martino Benevolent Fund and Screen Academy Scotland as well as the Scottish Screenwriters group, to hold a Script Pitch Challenge for Scottish-based screenwriters.

The winner & runner-up will each receive 1 ticket to the 2018 London Screenwriting Festival including flights to London as well as industry mentoring!

Donald Robertson Is Not A Stand Up Comedian!

A coming of age story which looks at comedy in an entirely different light.

What would you do if everyone in the world hated you? Would you run? Would you fight? Or would you try to make them laugh?

Donald Robertson has got no mates and he isn't funny. But with guidance from his new mentor Gary, he hopes that this is all about to change.

Writer/performer Gary McNair’s acclaimed monologue weaves a classic coming-of-age story with a pinpoint deconstruction of the darker side of stand-up comedy.
