Our Scotland team promotes the Into Film programme throughout the nation by delivering resources to schools and non school settings, organising industry-led activities and events, and developing young people's interest in working within the creative sector in Scotland.
The team consists of a Programme Manager, Programme Coordinator, and Programme Support Officer, who are supported by central staff across all other departments.
Our commitment to developing bespoke projects for Scotland includes the creation of Scotland-specific resources, all of which are linked to the Curriculum for Excellence, as well as the delivery of a Rural Roadshow, which allows us to reach the most remote and secluded areas of the country. We continue to develop our 'Scots Language through Film' programme, in partnership with Education Scotland, with new and exciting events and resources available year after year. We pride ourselves in ensuring that resources are also accessible to the Gaelic education community.
We are inspired by the success and passion of our film club community in Scotland, and aim to support this network by working with our leaders and responding to their needs. In this endeavour, we have created our Professional Network initiative, which aims to provide all leaders with better opportunities to communicate, learn and share best practice.
Developing and maintaining partnerships is of great importance to our work. We are working collaboratively with Scottish Film Education to develop a programme of Career Long Professional Learning, available to teachers in schools across Scotland. In addition to this, we also have key relationships with a wide variety of partners that support us in delivering our programme, as well as help raise awareness of the work we do. Our partners include Film Hub Scotland, Education Scotland, Scottish Book Trust, The Scottish Parliament (Education) and Young Scot, as well as a wide spread of cinema and cultural venues across Scotland.
We work with a number of Scottish Young People who are at the heart of what we do at Into Film in Scotland. They are engaged in our Young Reporters scheme and our Youth Advisory Council (Scotland).
Into Film Scotland is based in Edinburgh. Contact the Manager here.
