At North Lands Creative we are taking the risk of Covid-19 very seriously and have been since the onset of the pandemic. We are following the Scottish Government guidelines for creative studios and shared workspaces and plan to reopen the studio for activities that can be delivered under the current restrictions.

The studio will reopen for bookings by appointment only from the 1st May and we are hopeful that our onsite programming will return when restrictions lift even further.

We have developed a set of Social Distancing and Hygiene Guidelines to ensure a safe working environment for our visitors and staff and are committed to keeping them up to date and inline with Government advice. Through remaining vigilant we hope to safeguard your access to our facilities.

Help us keep open so we can help you to keep making.

Thank you for your patience and understanding, we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Glass, Meet the Future 2021

Glass, Meet the Future Film Festival is dedicated to presenting a selection of new films pivoting around the  medium of glass. The festival showcases a cross section of international diverse and engaging series of short films curated and directed by female identified and non-binary filmmakers using glass as the predominant feature.

GMTF is a microcosm to explore the human relationship with glass and film, exploring dynamics with the physical and environmental context, together with the human and social context.

The festival launches on the 20 March running throughout 2021 with a scheduled programme running across the international partners with a hybrid approach of physical and virtual presentation.
