A key part of the Screen Academy Scotland, Professional Practice programme is the Masterclass Sessions we offer throughout the year. In the highly competitive arena of screen & media we believe it is crucial that our students are given as much opportunity as possible to learn and network with people actively working in the industry.

Scottish Documentary Institute
Our students regularly collaborate with the Scottish Documentary Institute and many of our students have gone on to direct short documentaries through SDI's short docs programme Bridging the Gap. Additionally SDI regularly host Masterclasses which students and alumni are welcome to attend. In the past masterclasses with Scottish Documentary Institute have included Nick Broomfield, Nicholas Philibert, Simon Chinn ( producer of Man on Wire) and many more filmmakers from fiction as well as documentary- such as Cannes winning Sergei Dvortsevoy, and twice Oscar nominated editor Janus Jensen.
