The Film Festivals Fund aims to increase the range and diversity of films available to audiences in Scotland. Projects supported through this fund should help to promote cinemagoing and cinemas in Scotland, and to raise the profile of film, especially specialised film.
Film festivals play an important role in bringing diverse stories, representations and audiences together. We will prioritise support for festivals that improve the diversity of film programmes and audiences, including socio-economic and geographic diversity as well as protected characteristics; and we will also prioritise support for projects that offer engagement with film in locations that have limited access to cinema.
We will also consider support for other film exhibition projects, other than festivals, that have the potential to meet these aims. These projects might include film tours, or programmes taking place over an extended period.
