ABOUT US

Film Access Scotland represents the Film Access sector. The organisations that make up our membership provide opportunities across Scotland, especially to those experiencing disadvantage or exclusion, to participate in and engage with film.

Collectively, our founding members have 150 years’ experience of working with film in a very distinct way, with a central belief in the importance and effectiveness of using open and inclusive Film Access activities to enable people to:

Enjoy and learn about film and filmmaking as an artform and part of our culture.

Gain qualifications and advance along formal progression pathways.

Develop a voice and communicate more effectively.

Develop and regenerate communities.

Develop personal skills and enhance employability.

Improve health and wellbeing.

OUR MISSION

Film Access Scotland supports and champions its members and associates, ensuring the impact of their work is recognised and valued by policy makers, funders, the screen industry and organisations working in related sectors.

OUR VISION

Everyone in Scotland, but especially those experiencing disadvantage or exclusion, will have the opportunity to participate in and experience the transformative power of Film Access activities.
