The New Scottish Cinema

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This book surveys major trends in Scottish feature-length fiction filmmaking between 1990 and 2012. It seeks to explain how and why the conditions for a nascent domestic feature production industry and national cinema were created in two decades after 1990, given that Scotland was notable in both Anglophone and European contexts for having no substantive domestic film industry for most of the twentieth century. In addition to documenting and explaining how the material conditions for sustainable domestic feature production were created in late-twentieth/early-twenty-first century Scotland, the volume includes case study discussion (between 500 and 3500 words long) of 31 Scottish features from the period under discussion.
