What will the SNP do for the screen sector in Scotland?
We will create a new dedicated unit for film and TV, based within Creative Scotland, to streamline public sector support for the screen sector. It will combine expertise from our creative and enterprise partners, and oversee support from development to production to distribution, prioritising input and advice from the industry itself.
To support this, we will increase public funding for our film and screen sector to £20 million a year. Creative Scotland will now start Screen Unit implementation, with the Screen Unit due to be operational by the end of this financial year.
