GMAC Film is a Glasgow based skills, talent and project development centre for young people, new entrants and professionals working in film, whatever their background. We also produce videos and hire out space & equipment.
We work with partners like Creative Scotland, the Big Lottery Fund and BFI, enabling people to take control of their own future and improve opportunities in work and life through high quality learning and real world connections. Diversity and equality are at the heart of what we do.
GMAC Film is an active member of the Glasgow Youth Arts Hub, Film Access network Scotland (FANS) and Screen Training Scotland (STS), linking opportunities while identifying gaps and collaborating on new work.
We’re a charity and social enterprise; all income goes towards our work with young people and the independent filmmaking community.
GMAC FILM: SINCE 1982
GMAC Film began as Glasgow Film and Video Workshop to open access to independent filmmakers outside the Southern and London areas. Offering low cost access to facilities and equipment, we aimed to enable a greater diversity of people to make films and this, despite changing patterns of funding and outreach, remains our core purpose today.
In 2010 GMAC Film moved from humble premises in Albion Street to purpose built studios at Trongate 103 where we hire out (production) office space, a training suite, editing facilities and a screening room. With most of our community projects run in the same space, the 5th floor is a vibrant and inspiring hub for anyone creative.
GMAC Film is run by a dedicated team of staff members and Board of Directors.
