Scottish Screen Archive films at international festival

An Edinburgh International Film Festival celebration of Scottish film-making features footage from the National Library of Scotland's collections.

The event on Wednesday 23 June at the Filmhouse Cinema explores how Scottish film-makers have been tempting and influencing audiences since the early days of cinema.

Films from the Scottish Screen Archive at NLS show how they have portrayed Scotland's rich cultural and political heritage. Footage ranges from the abstemious Temperance movement to the first filmed sightings of the Loch Ness Monster. Afterwards there will be an open discussion with some of the film-makers.

Visit the Edinburgh International Film Festival website for tickets and other information.
