GMAC Film is a hub where people working in film meet & work. We offer a membership to local independent filmmakers to enjoy perks like equipment hire, free film screenings and discounted invites to talks and workshops. Every month we host Café Flicker – an ‘open screen’ event for local filmmakers to showcase their work in front of an audience of filmlovers.
GMAC Film also delivers career development programmes for filmmaking talent to help bridge the gap between the independent sector and more established part of the industry. Our most recent programme Foot In The Door supported a group of Scottish producers and filmmakers progress their careers through workshops, masterclasses, mentorship matchmaking and work placements. If you’d like to be the first to hear of upcoming opportunities, sign up to our newsletter.
Over five months Scotland on Demand will support three diverse, Scottish based writer and creative producer teams in the development of a 10-minute shooting script, to be showcased at a rehearsed table read to an audience of industry, broadcasters and commissioners. Teams will also be supported in the development of least two further episodes or a development slate.
We are currently open for applications for Scotland on Demand. The Application form and Application Guidelines & FAQ’s can be found below. Please ensure you read the Guidelines fully before submitting your application.
The programme finished with a forum at the Glasgow Film Festival in February 2017. The event was attended by an audience of industry professionals, funders and young filmmakers. It included a summation of findings from an external evaluation conducted by Arrivo Consulting, as well as a talk from Ali Bailey from Directors UK exploring how to address the lack of diversity in the industry.
