Scotland at Cannes 2023

Screen Scotland’s activity at this year's Cannes Film Festival and how to get in contact with our team at Cannes.

There’s no better time to film in Scotland.

Home to world-class talent, crews, facilities and breath-taking locations, Scotland also offers a range of financial, production and location support, including production incentive funds, and access to the UK tax reliefs for film and High-End TV.

Screen Scotland drives development of all aspects of Scotland’s film and tv industry, through funding and strategic support. We are here to help you make the best of the opportunities Scotland has to offer.
