Cutty Sark Blended Scotch Whisky Scholarships

Cutty Sark Blended Scotch Whisky, in partnership with EIFF and Arts & Business, offered three emerging Scottish filmmakers the opportunity to attend a film festival of their choice. This initiative was designed to allow filmmakers to challenge financial constraints that may prevent them from attending key festivals, and to use these events to their maximum potential by promoting their film projects and establishing industry contacts.


Successful scholars in 2012 selected Berlinale, Hot Docs and Annecy.


Cutty Sark Short Film Competition

The Cutty Sark Scholarships are part of the brand’s commitment to film and filmmakers. Cutty Sark is a major partner to the EIFF and supports many other initiatives that nurture film making talent.

In 2012, Cutty Sark Blended Scotch Whisky teamed up with the CMI to give aspiring filmmakers the chance to win a £5000 commission with Cutty Sark Film and have their work premiered at the 66th Edinburgh International Film Festival in June 2012. Contestants needed to create a 60-90 second film that captures the sense of adventure and pioneering spirit of Cutty Sark Whisky.
