FHS and The Skinny launch Indie Cinema Guide

We want as many people in Scotland as possible to experience great independent films in great venues.

That’s why we’ve joined forces with The Skinny to create a brand-new free magazine to encourage people to visit their local independent cinema.

The Indie Cinema Guide highlights some of the best new films coming soon to Scotland’s independent cinemas, as well as celebrating the teams behind some of our favourite cinemas. Produced by the team behind The Skinny magazine’s film coverage in collaboration with Film Hub Scotland, the 32-page free magazine features interviews, features and previews, as well as special discounts and offers to encourage readers to visit their local indie cinema.

The Spring/Summer 2023 edition of The Skinny presents… Indie Cinema Guide will be distributed to over 100 venues across Scotland, including the Glasgow Film Theatre, Dundee Contemporary Arts and the Dominion Cinema in Edinburgh.

Spotlighting independent films released between April and June, the guide features an interview with Hlynur Pálmason, the director of Godland, and Nida Manzoor, the director of Polite Society, which had its UK premiere at Glasgow Film Festival.

Unmissable upcoming releases – including the highly-anticipated Wes Anderson’s Asteroid City and One Fine Day, which features a magnetic performance from Léa Seydoux – are highlighted alongside re-releases Raging Bull and Scottish classic, Local Hero.

The project is supported by Film Hub Scotland as part of the UK-wide BFI Film Audience Network, made possible thanks to National Lottery funding, which aims to increase this awareness of independent films and where they are shown.
