Film Access Scotland, a consortium of leading moving image and media access organisations, are seeking to recruit a Director to support the membership to deliver its ambitious Strategic Plan.

Film Access Scotland was founded in November 2013 to facilitate consultation and representation at strategic level and to ensure that the film access sector receives the recognition and resources it needs to deliver film access and participation for all.
