We do this by:
• providing advice and information on setting up local screen facilities
• operating the Screen Machine mobile cinema
• managing a grant aid fund for Local Film Festivals across Scotland
• advocating for the social and economic benefits of cinema for local communities
We provide information, advice, contacts, and support to both individuals and organisations seeking either to start or to develop opportunities for cinema going in their communities. We’re committed to helping to bring people together to share and enjoy exciting, high quality screening experiences, where they live.
Digital technologies are making possible a huge range of new and different screen experiences, whether that’s gaining access to classic movies and films from across the world, exploring local history through archive film, sharing live performances in the form of ‘event cinema’, or showcasing local talent and community projects.
At Regional Screen Scotland we work particularly with those communities, across Scotland, which have no access—or only very limited access– to the full range of screening possibilities. We help to develop this access through working with a range of partners, from Film Hub Scotland to the UK Cinema Association and from Cinema for All to Film Mobile Scotland.
