Sustainability and Film: Creative Scotland Film Strategy 2014-2017

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

Creative Scotland has recently published their Film Strategy for 2014-2017. The strategy includes the context and ambitions of contemporary Scottish film, alongside Creative Scotland’s role in implementing a strategy to better support the industry in meeting these ambitions.

Amongst the key priorities mentioned in the report, sustainability has gained a growing role in the industry. Priorities included in the report involve the establishment of a sustainable film studio and an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable future for the industry in Scotland. Creative Carbon Scotland is identified as a partner in helping to “raise awareness of environmental and sustainability issues affecting the screen sector“.

Natalie Usher, Director of Film and Media at Creative Scotland, says of the strategy- “This is an ambitious Strategy for film in Scotland. It sets out our aim to make Scotland home to a vibrant, culturally diverse and commercially-competitive film sector.”

To read the entire report, please visit the Creative Scotland website.

Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.

In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.

We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.

Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:

Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
