Ayr Student Film Festival is an event organized through a three-part collaboration – the University of the West of Scotland, Ayr Film Society, and Filmmaking and Screen Writing students. This festival was conceived to create a cooperative environment among creative media local communities, aiming to support the growth and development of professionals, students, and regional projects. Specifically, Ayr Student Film Festival will offer the opportunity for early-stage filmmakers to network with fellow artists and professionals in the industry thanks to the screening of their own short films. This is also an opportunity to discover the many raising talents Ayr has to offer. Finally, the creation of the Ayr Student Film Festival will serve to increase territorial awareness and interest in cinema and media industries and the already existing regional filmmaking community.
