As we mentioned in Monday’s blog, Ken Loach’s new film The Angels’ Share is set partly in the Scottish Highlands.

As you may know, our workshops will continue to take place across Scotland throughout the Northern Lights submission period. After our workshop visit to Aberdeenshire this week, we’ll be joining you in Scotland’s beautiful Highlands and Islands!

These events are a great introduction to the project are open and accessible to all, full of helpful tips on how to shoot your video. We also offer an opportunity to learn about Northern Lights cash awards and meet the director, Nick Higgins. If you’re in the Highlands and Islands, keep an eye out for updates on this page and please do come along. We’d love to meet you!
