Scotland on Screen and The National Library of Scotland at the Kelvinhall in Glasgow

Last year the refurbished Kelvinhall opened to the public with an odd mix of sport and arts. A key part of this new development is the Scotland on Screen archive. Here is a video of them building the project. (Click on image below)

Scotland on Screen allows you to discover and learn about films from the National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive, Scotland's national collection of moving images.
A wide variety of learning resources have been created by film practitioners and teachers to accompany each clip. Specific topics and groups of films are explored in more detail in Lesson Guides which you can access in-house or online.

A number of short tutorials are available to help you get the most out of Scotland on Screen. These include:

•Editing In MovieMaker
•Moving Image Education
•Close Reading Guide for factual and fictional films

Everyone can:
•Browse and watch all clips on the site (over 15 hours of footage), search by subject or subject area
•Use archive clips as a starter introduction to a new topic
•Enjoy sharing clips and memories with family and community
•Explore the questions and activities independently to deepen your learning
With a login you can also:
•Download high quality clips and use them to make your own creative work
