The first three films in our new Right Here initiative are currently being broadcast on the BBC Scotland channel.
Right Here is a talent initiative run in association with Screen Scotland and the BBC that offers Scotland-based filmmakers a unique opportunity to create a 30-minute creative documentary for broadcast on TV. The initiative is for two years, giving the opportunity to six filmmakers to air their film on BBC Scotland.
While two films – Parisa Urquhart and Ling Lee’s Long Live Livi and Zoe Hunter Gordon and Kieran Hennigan’s Our Fathers – are now on BBC iPlayer, Lindsay Brown’s Time to Fly will be broadcast on Thursday 25th June at 8.30pm.
In Long Live Livi, a group of three ambitious skate girls — known as “The Snagglerats” who formed the group to inspire more girls to skate — are on a mission to save Livingston skatepark.
In Our Fathers, Father Maximilian and Father James have been sent on a mission by the Bishop of Aba, Nigeria to the Scottish Highlands due to a shortage of priests.
And in Time to Fly, a mother navigates through care options for her autistic daughter as she leaves residential school and transitions to adult accommodation.
