The CMI currently incorporates Scotland’s leading independent cinema, Filmhouse, the world’s longest continually running film festival, the Edinburgh International Film Festival, the Filmhouse and Belmont Filmhouse Café Bars, and the Belmont Filmhouse in Aberdeen.

The CMI has undergone significant change and growth since it was established from the merger of Filmhouse and Edinburgh International Film Festival seven years ago in 2010. This has seen its turnover increase by 80%, its reach becoming genuinely national, and its influence being felt both directly and indirectly through the range of sectoral partnerships it is involved in.
