Launch! On Tour

Dive into Launch! – a cinema release of archive film and video celebrating RNLI communities across Scotland. 

Directed by Shona Thomson in a co-production with Screen Argyll. With a brand new immersive soundtrack composed and recorded by John Ellis, Arun Ghosh, David McEwan, Jason Singh, Jenny Sturgeon.

Launch! is now touring cinemas across Scotland throughout the Autumn and Winter. Cinemas screening the 44-minute film are collaborating with local RNLI stations to celebrate the important work of their volunteers. 

Book tickets for your nearest screening here.

Each event is different so look out for special extras like additional films of your local lifeboat, or an in-person discussion afterwards with RNLI crew, or a pre-recorded blether with the folk involved in making the film.

If you’d like Launch! to screen in your community before the end of 2021: please ask your local cinema to email us to discuss how to book the film. You can find your nearest cinema or film club on Mapping Scotland’s Screen Community.

We can offer cinemas the 45-minute film in a variety of formats with subtitles and the specially recorded soundtrack, as well as tips on running activity around the film in support of their nearest lifeboat station. All for a subsidised screening fee.
