Screen Argyll and SO:AR present:
Take Flight a Touring Film Programme and Tailwind Film Weekender



Screen Argyll are delighted to be working with Island Arts Collective SO:AR to deliver a film-based weekend and touring programme as part of the BFI Film Feels: Hopeful season. The programme on Jura also acts as a centrepiece of their ‘Take Flight’ project which is part of the CHArts Argyll & The Isles Placemakers Micro Cluster Networks programme, funded by Creative Scotland.

SO:AR is a collective of artists, makers and arts activists who live and work on the Isle of Jura. Their aim is to make Jura a place for everyone to be, and for that place to be somewhere that offers the opportunity to be involved in shared activity, experience, and self-expression with the people around you.

Screen Argyll has worked with SO:AR to curate a programme of films and activities, building on ideas explored by the Artists collective SO:AR including Slow media, with knowledge of the past what would you take into the future?  How do we process the last 18 months? These films and activities bring communities together and provide a platform for conversation. Keeping activities light in touch and playful, enabling communities and individuals to reflect and discuss, bringing thoughts and ideas which radiate out into communities through the shared experience of film.

Part of the BFI Film Feels: Hopeful season, The Take Flight programme and Tailwind Film Weekender will take place on the Isle of Jura over a weekend and across the Small Isles and the Isle of Tiree throughout August. Some of the films will also be available on Screen Argyll’s virtual screen with resources and created by SO:AR, enabling audiences to take part wherever they are.
