Whether they are laughing, fidgeting or playing in the street and garden, children have always been an inevitable and irresistible subject for the amateur film-maker.


This new exhibition – focusing exclusively on films made of and by children in Scotland over the last 80 years – demonstrates the incredible diversity of films made during the 20th Century and beyond. It celebrates the advanced amateur (the cine-dad) who made films for exhibition at national amateur film festivals, whilst also looking at more modest home movies which feature children dressed up at carnival time or playing in the snow.

It looks too, at how children have played an important part in community arts projects and explores the way in which film and video have increasingly been used in schools. In collaboration with the Museum of Childhood, academics at the University of Glasgow and archivists from the Scottish Screen Archive have developed a colourful, interactive exhibition which aims to reveal and celebrate the ‘other world’ of Scottish film and its unique relationship to the world of childhood.
