Natural Scotland on Screen

In this Year of Natural Scotland, we want to debate and celebrate Scotland's place on big and small screens. A partnership project between Creative Scotland and Scottish Natural Heritage, 'Natural Scotland on Screen' brings together a collection of films, documentaries and television programmes that showcase how filmmakers and broadcasters have represented, misrepresented, imagined and re-imagined Scotland's natural landscapes, wildlife and biodiversity. How much of how the world views Scotland is shaped by the images we see on screen? And how do Scotland's natural resources inspire filmmakers? These screenings suggest some answers.

Included in the programme – showing in venues all over Scotland during summer, autumn and winter – are titles as diverse as Local Hero, Seachd: the Inaccessible Pinnacle, Brigadoon, Ring of Bright Water, The Illusionist and You've Been Trumped.

A series of talks and debates will also accompany the screenings. And at the end of November we will be having a 'Scots on the Box' day focussing on the bright spotlight television shines on Scotland's natural resources through regional programming and recent educational series such as Hebrides: Islands on the Edge.
