Scottish Screen welcomes the responsibilities placed upon it by the Freedom of Information (Scotland Act) 2002.

Scottish Screen, 2nd Floor, 249 West George Street, Glasgow, G2 4QE. 

Freedom of Information rules were designed to promote a culture of openness and accountability amongst public sector bodies by providing people with rights of access to the information held by them. By providing rights to information, it is hoped that people will better understand how public authorities carry out their duties, why they make the decisions they do and how they spend public money.

Scottish Screen aims to act in a spirit of openness and transparency. Under Section 23 of the Act we are required to adopt and maintain a publication scheme, approved by the Scottish Information Commissioner, which can be downloaded from this site and gives details of the classes of information we routinely make publicly available. We will also indicate what charge, if any, will be made and in what form the information will be available. This will assist members of the pubic to identify what information is readily available on request.

Historical documents on Scottish Screen can be obtained from The Scottish Archive Network at or from the Scottish Screen Archive by e-mailing The Scottish Screen Archive also provides access to archive footage, please visit their online catalogue for full details at

Any information can be requested under the act but some exemptions do apply - these include:

Where we have declined to provide information, we will do so in writing and provide a suitable reason why. To make a complaint about information withheld from you, please read our complaints procedure also available from this site.
