Made by the Sea: Portsoy is a fascinating big screen presentation of life on Scotland’s coasts and seas with a unique selection of archive films of Scotland and the Portsoy area from the National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive.
From high drama on the fishing boats to popular seaside destinations, the sea has an important part to play in our national moving image collection. Curator Shona Thomson presents films of Scottish coastal life from as early as 1908 alongside a wonderful record of village life in 1950s Portsoy, Cullen and Aberchirder filmed by local cinema manager William Davidson. The screening will be followed by an informal blether with special guests connected to the films.
On tour across Scotland, Made by the Sea is part of the BFI Britain on Film project, making thousands of newly digitised film and TV titles from archives across the UK available to view online. Event duration: 90 minutes approx.
