Description

Following criticism that Scotland's film industry has suffered from lack of investment and direction, Creative Scotland has published a three-year film strategy. The arts body has come up with a plan for the future to harness local potential, attract inward development and to put the country on the map as a key international film location. The strategy was drawn up after consultation with a wide range of individuals and organisations. It sets out a number of key priorities, such as the establishment of a sustainable film studio, greater support for writers and script development, support for Scotland's production community, in particular documentary-making and animation, through sourcing increased funding and greater emphasis on film education with clearer routes from school to further education and then into industry.
