The Edinburgh Film Guild Forsyth Hardy Lecture

  • 60 mins

What Kind of (Scottish) Film Culture Do We Want?

Writer and former head of BFI Distribution Colin McArthur has explored the above question for decades in publications such as Brigadoon, Braveheart and the Scots, making it the natural subject for his Forsyth Hardy Lecture. He will review the aftermath of EIFF’s landmark 1982 Scotch Reels event (for which he convened the organising group and edited its accompanying publication), the institutional developments of filmmaking in Scotland and the possible lacunae — its concern with history, for instance — therein.
