The Docscene programme is delivered by the Scottish Documentary Institute and supported by Creative Scotland.
Among the activities supported are:
Bridging the Gap
The initiative aims to bridge the gap between training/graduation and a first commission by Scottish-based filmmakers – offering a series of training workshops and ongoing support throughout the development, the production and the distribution of four 10' short documentaries.
This is Scotland
This is Scotland is a new talent initiative, offering Scottish based filmmakers a unique opportunity to work with SDI Productions, resulting in two 30-minute creative documentaries that will screen at peak time on STV.
The Edinburgh Pitch
Running alongside the Edinburgh International Film Festival, The Edinburgh Pitch allows selected participants take part in a one-day preparatory workshop before a formal public pitch, followed by one-to-one meetings with decision makers the next day.
The Scottish Documentary Institute offers year-round submissions of Scottish documentary projects in development (shorts and features) to their Docscene project pool.
