Scottish Arts Council funds cinema access

The Scottish Arts Council and Scottish Screen have opened a funding program that aims to increase the number of accessible screens in Scotland. Scotland has 16 accessible screens at present.

The funding scheme works much like the now-spent UK Film Council fund. Cinemas can apply for up to 50% in matching funds covering equipment reimbursement. There is a limit of £5,000 per cinema.

The total program budget is £100,000. For the cinemas to be eligible they must meet particular requirements, including a commitment to using the equipment for at least three years from installation.

Scotland has 322 screens in 62 venues and the funding program could see more than half of the cinemas in Scotland becoming accessible.

The program was developed in conjunction with the major blind and Deaf agencies in the UK, and the UK Film Council. For more information:
