The Network is made up of nine Film Hubs which cover the whole of the UK. Film Hub Scotland is led by Scottish Film, a consortium comprising the key arthouse cinemas and film festivals in Scotland.
- providing advice and information on setting up local screen facilities
- operating the Screen Machine mobile cinema
- managing a grant aid fund for Local Film Festivals across Scotland
- advocating for the social and economic benefits of cinema for local communities
RSS provides information, advice, contacts, and support to both individuals and organisations seeking either to start or to develop opportunities for cinema-going in their communities. They are committed to helping to bring people together to share and enjoy exciting, high quality screening experiences, where they live.
Many of the Archive’s items are unique and you cannot see them elsewhere. The collections are largely non-fiction and reflect:
- Scottish social, cultural and industrial history
- The lives of ordinary Scots across the generations
- The achievements of Scottish film-makers in the craft of film production.
