Discovery Film Festival: Scotland's International Film Festival for Young Audiences

Discovery Film Festival is Scotland's leading film festival for young audiences.

2009 dates: 20th October - 1st November

2010 dates: TBC 16th - 30th October

Discovery screens new international film made for, or relevant to, young people aged 3 to 21. From non-dialogue animation for little ones, to challenging coming of age films and anime for older audiences. We screen approximately 30 films over 10 days.

We have a small section for films made by young people, under 18s based in Scotland, called the Discovery Youth Screen Award. However, the main programme are films by professional filmmakers, the best international films for young audiences from the past year, including UK premieres of award winners such as Crystal Bear winner It's Not Me, I Swear.

We have a large education programme for schools, featuring films with teaching resources and links to the curriculum.

Discovery takes place at the DCA and at partner venues across Scotland including Edinburgh Filmhouse, Glasgow GFT, and Inverness Eden Court.

To submit a film email a summary or web link to and we will request screeners if the films look suitable.



The Providence Effect



Director: Jason Perryman.

Freediving & swimming with Tiger Sharks in South African waters with Walter Bernardis, an expert diver on these animals. Throughout the scuba dives he shows that Tiger Sharks are not anywhere near as aggressive or dangerous as we think and that we can dive with them safely, but also investigates the Tigers' behaviour more thoroughly. Such as their varying behaviours around the bait, how they react to electromagnetive waves, or how they even see us. We're left with a deepened affection for them as well as a deepend sense of safety.

But in the 2nd half, the action switches to the beach nets that kill the Sharks to protect the bathers. We learn of their painful death at the hands of the Natal Sharks Board, and their actual dissections in front of an audience by this organisation. We learn how much damage is done to the Tiger Shark population in SA but also other Sharks and marine species too.

Overall the film's journey takes us on an arc where our fears of Tiger Sharks are dispelled and replaced instead with a fondness but also sympathy for their own danger and survival.
