When asked about the films distribution we were informed that there was no marketing budget so to date the film has been an exercise in self-distribution by a series of local premiers and then by request. The good news is that it has recently been picked up by Cineworld for their multiplexes in Scotland from May 3rd this year, the first Scottish documentary to do so. It is also to be shown as part of New Yorks, Tartan Week. Another member of the audience asked if the BBC had been interested in providing finance but we were told that they were nervous about the film for some reason so no money was forth coming, but Nick felt that after the films positive response it could be shown on the small screen at some time in the future. Incidentally it took 2 years to raise enough money to make the film. The question on every bodies mind was what was going to happen to the vast amount of footage that was never used? Nick told us that it would be included on the films web site and accessed by clicking on a map of Scotland indexed by the area represented. He concluded his informative discussion by saying ‘a country without a documentary is like a family without a family photo album’.
