Nothing tells the story of a city like an incomer asking obvious questions. This is a programme of old narratives and new interpretations of the city of Discovery told by Dundonians themselves. In a year when Dundee has just been named “the most cultured place in Scotland” and GQ magazine dubbed it “Britain’s coolest little city”, join in the conversation about a city with a bright future.

Made in My Toun is a screening of rare films from the archives telling the story of urban growth across Scotland, followed by a panel discussion – or ‘blether’ – about re-presenting our towns and cities on the big screen. On tour from Ayr to Aberdeen, Made in My Toun 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 in celebrating the ‘touns’ that have changed the face of Scotland.  Event duration: 90 mins approx.
