Audio Interview: Ron Inglis, Director of Regional Screen Scotland
Regional Screen Scotland (RSS) is the development agency for access to the cinemagoing experience for remote, rural, coastal and under-provided communities throughout Scotland. It has a significant part to play in the future, both immediate and long-term, of cinema in this country.
ReelScotland has featured many RSS-supported events, including the Aberfeldy Film Festival and Shetland's Screenplay festival, along with the mobile Screen Machine cinema, with more to come in future months.
I met with RSS's Director, Ron Inglis, for a wide-ranging discussion which encompassed many aspects of cinema provision in Scotland. Along with a look at the current situation in rural areas of the country, we also discussed the reasons for the resurgence in popularity of communal cinema-going and the need for more innovative business models and digital projection facilities.
