Intensive Group Workshops

Northern Lights will run a series of 2 day intensive workshops  in partnership with Diversity FilmsScreen Education Edinburgh, and partner filmmakers and organisations.

These workshops are specifically aimed at individuals and groups who face significant obstacles that make it difficult to participate in a project of this nature.

Such obstacles can be related to disabilities, financial circumstances, ethnicity, or geographic location.

Whilst many of these workshops will, by their nature, be only available to individuals and groups that meet these criteria, please do email us or our partners if you believe you or a group you work with might benefit from our workshops.

Please click on the individual workshop dates for full details.
