JUMPCUT is looking for applications from young people from diverse backgrounds across Scotland who can demonstrate a passion for film and television and a commitment to work hard. Applicants don’t need to have a huge amount of experience but they will be looking for evidence of their interest in film and filmmaking as a potential career.

The deadline for applications is 29th February 2016.
