Bridging The Gap

  • 90 mins

What do red and grey squirrels, a disabled rights campaigner, suicide, ballet shoemakers, World War reinactors, prostitution and the lord all have in common?

The theme of SHIFT - this year’s Scottish Documentary Institute’s Bridging the Gap Production Scheme. Based in the Edinburgh College of Art, it nurtures the finest documentary filmmaking talent Scotland has to offer. Setting a theme each year they take six projects through an intensive training period where six films get made to be seen across the world on television and at festivals.
