Film Access Scotland is the national sector development body representing Film Access organisations and practitioners across Scotland. Its members use film as an expressive tool to unlock the potential of individuals, groups and communities to bring about positive and lasting social change. Members use film and filmmaking to change lives by developing personal, social and technical skills, improving employability outcomes and focussing on health and wellbeing. They work with young people, adult learners, schools, communities and film talent through high-quality, inclusive and accessible learning, training and production programmes.
The founder members of the consortium are shown below, but FAS is a new organisation and a key priority is to grow its membership to ensure national coverage.
Screen Scotland supports the network to undertake this development work, also to lead the Climate Challenge: 1.5o Films, and to deliver an annual film festival for young people (up to age 25). Individual FAS member organisations also deliver the BFI Film Academy and Moving Image Arts AS Level.
