|As of November there are now three New Promoters working at GFF, GFT and the CCA! The programme aims to increase the number of film programmers who are marginalised working for cinemas, festivals and venues within Scotland. They will each programme and produce screenings and events during their placement and receive training across all areas of running a venue and/or festival. More to come on the New Promoters in the new year, including news of their first projects.
We also supported HippFest's tour of Rob Roy (1922) with live score from composer David Allison, taking the film to Stirling Castle where audiences enjoyed a truly atmospheric night watching the film in its original filming location, minus the 800 local extras...
And last but not least, all of our Pitch Pot and Pilot Project recipients who produced amazing work, bringing a huge range of independent cinema to more people across Scotland, from silent films to experimental documentaries and everything in between.
Oh, and we delivered This Way Up 2019 with our colleagues at Film Hubs North and Midlands – rumour has it this was the best edition yet...
We're back in the office on Monday 6 January - if you have any questions over the Christmas break, we will get back to you then.
Best Wishes for the Season.
The Film Hub Scotland Team
