Scatterbox Films is a youth arts programme set up to develop independent film making and associated skills particularly, but not exclusively, with young people. Freda O’Byrne co-founded the group with young people and other adults.

The group has made narrative films written, performed, filmed and edited by cross generational groups of adults and young people. Scatterbox has made documentaries for The Big Project at Broomhouse with Kim Edgar,involving Karine Polwart, King Creosote, Rachel Sermanni and Findlay Napier.

Scatterbox has also supported several third sector groups with recording their events and making mini documentaries for them to share with their members and funders.
