Since 2007 our screen sector has gone from strength to strength and production spend in Scotland has increased by 200 per cent.
We’re investing to grow the sector further. This year, total public funding for screen development, production and growth doubled to £20 million.
We supported the establishment of Screen Scotland – a dedicated unit for film and TV, based within Creative Scotland – and funded the establishment of a National Film & Television School for Scotland in Glasgow. The School will offer bursary funding to a third of students in the first two years in order to improve diversity and inclusion in the screen sector.
