What could Scotland be like by the year 2030? What should it be like? One new short film hopes to provide an answer. A new 15-minute documentary called Our Future Scotland was commissioned by the Scotland’s Futures Forum - based at the Scottish Parliament - and will be screened on Wednesday 16th May at 6pm. The film showcases a range of visions of the future with contributions from more than 20 people across the country including Scotland’s First Minister, the writers Chris Brookmyre and David Baillie, the actor Brian Cox and the Scots Makar Jackie Kay.
The film was produced by James Blake, the director of the Centre for Media and Culture at Edinburgh Napier University. It’s part of his ongoing research work into interactive and participatory media forms. Our Future Scotland is intended to be a launch-pad for others to send in their ideas and aspirations for the future of Scotland.
