EUSA Global and the University of Edinburgh’s Gather Festival are collaborating with just Festival to bring you the 2015 edition of the just Gather Film Festival!

As a weeklong celebration of film and culture aimed at sharing experiences both local and global, the programme will feature a mix of short film screenings, film making workshops, and critically acclaimed feature length films such as ‘En Tierra Estraña’. We’ll also be having talks with directors and filmmakers, including Bafta-winning director Samir Mehanovic!


The Festival will be held from the 15th-22nd of March 2015 at venues across Edinburgh including Summerhall, Pleasance, and St. John’s Church.
 

Submissions for films are now closed, and we’re busy reviewing our submission to deliver a programme. But in the meantime if you would like to volunteer to help out, or are interested in holding an event or workshop for the festival, feel free to contact the festival organiser André Neto-Bradley at andre.neto-bradley@eusa.ed.ac.uk
