Scottish Documentary Institute – We grow films

Scottish Documentary Institute is an internationally recognised documentary research centre based at Edinburgh College of Art specialised in documentary training, production and distribution. It was set up in 2004. We run a diverse slate of international activities in order to stimulate and inspire the documentary scene in Scotland and beyond. Straddling between art and industry, we aim to support authored films driven by content and emotional experience. We have developed audience innovation tools and strategies through bespoke campaigns for our award-winning films (I Am Breathing, Future My Love) and are committed to the promotion of documentary and filmmakers worldwide.

All about creative documentary. The Scottish Documentary Institute is a research centre at Edinburgh College of Art dedicated to production, distribution and training in documentary.
