What is ReelScotland?

ReelScotland is a free newsletter covering Scotland's screen and digital sector, written and edited by freelance journalist Jonathan Melville.

Established in 2010, the newsletter and podcast feature interviews with people making an impact on Scotland's TV, film and digital sectors, plus news, previews of some of the best new TV/web series and films.

With a Scottish film studio on the way, the BBC Scotland channel commissioning more local content, Channel 4 opening a Glasgow Creative Hub, STV producing drama again and Scottish documentaries making an impact around the globe, this is a promising time for Scottish creative talent, albeit with the spectre of Covid-19 confusing things.

Subscribers will receive at least one news round-up per month, along with additional interviews and features as and when they happen.
