Brodick, Arran

Date: Friday 20 July 2018

Venues: Screen Machine + Brodick Community Hall

The premiere screening of the Shore tour was in Brodick on the island of Arran. This was the first time audiences would have the opportunity to see Margaret Salmon’s film CLADACH and Ed Webb-Ingall’s I WALK THERE EVERY DAY BUT I NEVER SAW IT THAT WAY. To celebrate this a whole day of activities were planned, encouraging people of all ages to take a closer look at the shoreline and sea. Image: Eoin Carey

Hear how people in Brodick see the sea…

Big thanks to our event partners in Brodick

Local marine conservation organisation COAST (Community of Arran Seabed Trust) led a number of marine science activities across the day including a touch tank with sea creatures from the Clyde, rockpooling sessions and the chance to get a microscopic view of the sea. These were really popular and allowed people to interact with and understand a bit more about the underwater landscapes the films were depicting.

The Shore films were premiered in the comfort of the Screen Machine - Scotland’s much-loved mobile cinema touring to rural areas of the highlands and islands, operated by Regional Screen Scotland. In attendance, were the filmmakers Margaret Salmon and Ed Webb-Ingall who gave audiences an insight into their artistic practice and approach to the Shore brief. The day ended with a live archive film event ‘Made by the Sea’, curated and delivered by Shona Thomson of A Kind of Seeing.
