Please help us support the next generation of content creators and young film makers

At GMAC Film, for the last 38 years we have and continue to promote equality of opportunity for all; inclusive of ethnicity, creed, sexual orientation, gender, age and disability.  We provide open access for all to acquire the skills, knowledge, resources and confidence to realise their ambitions in film and in the creative industries.

We need to raise £25,000 to help us buy cameras, lenses, sound and editing equipment and lights. Each Black Magic Camera costs £920 and a set of lenses is £880 – it adds up very quickly.

A little more about us

GMAC Film seeks to empower people of all ages and backgrounds to engage in projects free at the point of delivery so that low income is never a barrier to taking part.  We actively reach out to and recruit from communities, including young carers, cared for people, rurally excluded, women and girls, BAME and ethnic minorities, LGBTQIA+, asylum seekers, Disabled/D/deaf and people living in the top 20% areas of multiple deprivation. 

1602153918_img_9593.jpgAs a membership organisation GMAC Film provides a welcoming, safe and inclusive environment to promote knowledge and appreciation of the creative sector and what it can do for the confidence, knowledge and ambition of those who wish to become involved with it, allowing each voice to be heard.

What’s in it for you?

Aside from supporting young people in what we hope are their first steps in a rewarding career, we’ll be thanking all of our supporters via a physical donor wall in our reception. For amounts over £500 we will hold a thank you evening to show some of the films made by our young people.

If you're a business, we have a range of other sponsorship opportunities on our website and we have the possibility of applying for match funding through Arts & Business Scotland for business sponsors - so please visit our site if this could be of interest to you.
