Film Access Scotland offers a year-round programme of workshops, training and networking opportunities for Film Access organisations and practitioners. In June 2023, Film Access Scotland will deliver its first Film Access Sector Annual National Conference.
FILM ACCESS WORKSHOP SERIES
Film Access Workshops are a series of events aimed at Film Access Scotland members and associates.
The Workshops will be sector-specific, constructed around the training needs of Film Access practitioners, offering the opportunity to share good practice and knowledge across the Sector. We have designed the Workshops to be participatory, practical and an opportunity for our members and associates to meet and network.
