St Andrews // 10 December
Scotland’s famous university town: home to a wide variety of different communities…
The New Picture House Cinema, 117 North Street, St Andrews KY16 9AD // Box Office: 01334 474902 // How to get there
In this special programme, diverse Scottish urban communities live side by side. From Raisin Weekend to the Lammas Market, tradition can draw people – students, golfers and natives – together in 1970s St Andrews. The traditions continue to this day but is urban life still as harmonious as the filmmakers lead us to believe? Come along and be part of the conversation.
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.
