The video below collects the voices and views of a group of slightly older young people - aged between 18 and 20 - who have worked with the Glasgow Film Theatre in Scotland. The group constitute what are known as ‘young programmers’, or sometimes ‘young consultants’: a group of peers who choose films, and devise events for each other.

Watch the video below - paying especial attention to the still images - and see if you can infer the kinds of event they curate.
