Adam Castle has an impressive CV that spans filmmaking, curating, producing and performing. It's no surprise that he won the Creative Edinburgh Leadership Award back in 2016.
As the founder and director of Pollyanna queer arts company and Edinburgh Artists’ Moving Image Festival (EAMIF), he has certainly made a mark on the creative scene here. It was a pleasure to catch up with him and find out what he's been up to since winning, and the advice he has to share with artists following in his footsteps.
CE: Tell us a bit about your creative practice. How did you get started?
Adam: I am a producer and artist. I direct Pollyanna queer arts company and Edinburgh Artists’ Moving Image Festival (EAMIF), and I also produce artist’s films and cabaret performances. The most important thing for getting started was working together with brilliant people, as both Pollyanna and EAMIF would not have been possible without close collaboration with other creatives.
