Seen the film in the cinema and enjoyed it? Now you can watch it online!

We hope you agree that We Are Northern Lights paints an inspiring picture of Scotland.

Created as a result of mass participation, Scotland’s first ever crowdsourced documentary is an incredible example of what can be achieved when creative people collaborate to express their lives, hopes and dreams on screen.

Online Release from today

The film will go live with a full digital distribution release from today, Friday 18th of October, when voting for the Bafta Scotland Audience Award also begins.

For a single payment of £3.99 you can now watch the film online.

What better way to remind folk of the great beauty, humour, tolerance, vision, diversity and resilience that can be seen in the people and places of Scotland than by sharing our unique national film portrait with the rest of the world?

Of course you can also catch the film on the big screens in Scotland, from 20 October through to 29 October, as part of the Cineworld Bafta tour. Screening details on this page of the Cineworld website.
