UK

 

The United Kingdom consists of the nations of Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland. From medieval ruins and castles, vast mountains, sprawling countryside and forests, lochs and lakes, to vibrant cosmopolitan cities, the four nations all offer unique experiences and cultures.

The UK is represented by our Partners from Scotland and England.


England

England is the largest of the four nations that make up the United Kingdom. The varied landscape consists of moorland, lakes, forests, beaches and mountains. Cosmopolitan cities, such as the capital, London, offer both ancient history and modern culture. London is home to the London Film Festival, the British Film Institute and the UK Film Council. From classic films such as those by David Lean and Noel Coward, to the hugely popular Harry Potter franchise and the films of Ridley Scott, to name but a few, England has continued to produce internationally successful features. Our English Partner, Screen South, is based in Kent. Screen South is the regional screen agency for the South of England and aims to develop, support and promote the film and media industries and culture in the region.

Scotland

From the majestic ruins of castles and forts, to lochs, forests and miles of coastal beaches, to cities full of history and culture, Scotland has a variety of sights to offer. Both rural and urban landscapes are easily accessible by road, air and rail. The capital, Edinburgh, is home to the Edinburgh International Film Festival, which attracts both industry professionals and movie-goers. Creative Scotland is the national development agency for the screen industries in Scotland. Smaller, independent festivals are also on the rise, such as the Mountain Film Festival, and the Dundee-based Discovery Film Festival, which focuses solely on films for younger audiences. As a city Dundee is home to our Scottish Partners: Dundee College, the University of Dundee, Dundee City Council and TayScreen, the regional screen commission.  Famous Scots include Bond legend Sir Sean Connery, Ewan McGregor, Kelly MacDonald, Tilda Swinton, Dougray Scott, James McAvoy, and Dundonian Brian Cox.
