Welcome to Scotland on Screen
For details of films recently added and information on workshops and CPD sessions, please see our latest news and updates page.
Scotland on Screen is an exciting educational resource that puts hundreds of important historical film texts online, providing students with a rear-view mirror on our society over the past century.
This resource is also about introducing young people to the language of moving images and promoting the aims of 21st Century Literacy. This means showing students that audio-visual narratives are complex, multi-layered texts that need to be analysed to be properly understood.
You can search for, view, analyse and discuss lots of historical film clips from the Scottish Screen Archive (part of National Library of Scotland) and make use of the extensive learning resources designed by teachers from across Scotland and Creative Scotland's lead practitioners in Moving Image Education.
