Members and the public were invited to the launch of three short films

In 2020/2021 FEUVA Productions commissioned three films of interviews with artists from Film and TV students at Edinburgh College of Art. Our intention was to provide an events programme during Covid 19 Lockdown and at the same time to support student film-making.

These were, mosaic artist, Helen Miles and the painters, Jock McFadyen and Alexander Moffat.

Each screening via Zoom, was introduced by the interviewers, and then followed by a short Q&A session with the film-makers.

The films can be viewed below
