Curate-It is a new platform through which emerging curators can learn about the practices and processes of film curation.
As part of this year’s festival, EIFF and Curate-It offered two fellowships to Scotland-based early career curators. Over 13 weeks, Beulah Ezeugo and Zainab Ashraf undertook the Curate-It course and curated bold and engaging film events as part of the 76th edition of the festival.
How to watch
These events will be available to view for free online for 72 hours via the Curate-It VoD platform. They will be available in the UK only. The films have closed captions.
Films will be available to view from 19:00 on the first day to 19:00 on the last day. If you begin to view the film on or slightly before 19:00 on the last day of viewing, you will be able to watch it continuously through.
Their events will be available to watch online during the festival on the Curate-It VoD platform: app.curate-it.co.uk/watch
