Made on Our Land: Castle Douglas is a screening of rare films from the archives exploring the rural lives and landscapes of Scotland and Dumfries and Galloway, followed by a panel discussion – or ‘blether’ – about the films being screened and the roots of our strong tradition of rural cinemagoing.

As well as national films including Scotland’s efficient land use during the Second World War, the programme features films documenting the changing rural life in Dumfries and Galloway in the 1930s and 1950s. The screening will be followed by an informal blether with specialists in local history and archives.

On tour from the Outer Hebrides to the Scottish Borders, Made on Our Land is part of the BFI Britain on Film project: making thousands of newly digitised film and TV titles from archives across the UK available to view online. Join curator Shona Thomson as she unearths some celluloid gems from the National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive. Event duration: 90 mins approx.
