This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book seeks to challenge many of the assumptions that dominate thinking about Scottish cinema. It is concerned specifically with the role played by the devolution of public service broadcasters, particularly BBC Scotland, in shaping Scottish cinema. The book concerns the role of subsidy programmes and public service broadcasters in fostering the development of indigenous film-makers. It also concerns the ways in which various policy instruments have facilitated the transnational movement of film-makers to Scotland, as well as the movement of Scottish film-makers to other countries to make their films. The book deals with publicly funded works, most of which involve some combination of public service broadcaster funding and lottery subsidies distributed by Scottish Screen.
