Discovery Media Studies Study Day

#DiscoveryFilmFest

This year we will once again offer a day of behind-the-scenes access in the film industry, and are planning a day of film-related activity for students currently studying film and/or media at upper secondary level.

Last year’s event included a preview screening of teenage zomromcom Anna and the Apocalypse, along with a Q&A with the film’s director John McPhail. Exact content for 2019 is still being negotiated, dependent as we are on industry figures with their ever-changing diary demands. Based on suggestions from the Dundee Media Teachers’ Network, we are currently in conversation with the BBFC about the possibility of their attending to present on the issue of film classification, and a local Scottish filmmaker coming along to show, and be questioned on, their new feature film.

For up-to-the-minute details about this year’s Study Day programme, please contact mike.tait@dca.org.uk.

Please note that because of the extended length of this event, tickets will cost £9 per student (accompanying adults free) and that we will be unable to assist with transport to and from this event.


We are open for school bookings from 11:00 on Thu 22 August until Fri 1 November (with priority booking at our Teachers Preview).

To book, please call DCA Box Office on 01382 432 444.
