Welcome to ReelScotland, a new online-only source for reviews, previews, features and interviews covering some of the most exciting film events taking place around Scotland.
While new releases, classic re-releases, film festivals and one-off screenings at Scotland’s cinemas will all be covered, ReelScotland will also look behind-the-scenes and speak to some of the people involved in bringing the most vibrant, challenging and entertaining films from around the world to a screen near you.
We’ll also be looking at the history of film, cinema and television in Scotland, with some exciting new features planned.
Starting with a round-table review of Kick-Ass by regular writers Jonathan Melville, Ross Maclean and Richard Bodsworth, we also interview the creators of new Scottish film Crying with Laughter and look back at the glory years of Scotland’s cinemas, as well as take a look around the country at what’s happening near you.
This site is Phase One of an ongoing project, more details of which will be available soon.
In the meantime, have a look around and let us know what you think. We need to know what you really want to read about and can take all kind comments and abuse thrown at us (though we do prefer the former…). You can also let us know your thoughts via Twitter @ReelScotland.
And, if you think you can do better, then feel free to prove it, we’re on the look out for new contributors – just email email@example.com and we’ll get back to you.
