Big Screen outside GSC in abstract colour

Space For Everyone

Glasgow Science Centre is currently redeveloping its external environment to create a community space that reflects and represents the diverse populations of the city.

We want to tell the many different stories of people in Glasgow and beyond by inviting local communities to make short films on the theme of "connections". This wide range of films will be shown on the big screen at Glasgow Science Centre to visitors and passers-by using the outdoor space.

This is your chance to make and submit a film that can be seen by thousands of people outdoors in Glasgow!

Your community-made film

Your community-made film should follow the general theme of "connections". Your film could be about connections to the local area, connections to a particular community group, connections to local history, the river, science- the list is endless!

How to submit a film

Once you've created your film it can be submitted to or if the file is too large, can be sent via WeTransfer or similar programme.

All films which are approved by GSC staff will be shown on the big screen with all film creators being invited to see their film on the big screen over the summer.

Films must be submitted by Friday 25 June and you can find full details here.
