Entries are now open for the Central Scotland Documentary Festival 2022.

The festival will run from November 3 to 7 and is entirely curated by the Macrobert Arts Centre at the University of Stirling.

Filmmakers can submit documentaries or non-fiction films with a runtime of 50 minutes or more.

Successful entrants will then compete for the audience award, voted by attendees to the Cent Scot Docu Fest, and the Jury award, voted for by a jury of industry professionals selected by the festival.

Winners in these categories will also be awarded £1000.

Last year’s winners included, Rico: The Richard Demarco Story, A documentary exploring the life of an acclaimed Italo-Scot Visual artist, Richard Demarco, for the Audience award; and Who is James Payton?, an inside look at fame from the perspective of a working actor, for the Jury Award.

2021 was the first year in which filmmakers were encouraged to submit their work. Fifty entries from twenty-three countries were narrowed down to just 12 official selections.

21 films were showcased in total with 1 world, 3 European, 5 UK, and 2 Scottish premieres all part of the festival’s programme.

Beginning in 2017, the festival is a tribute to the “Father of Documentary” John Grierson who originates from Stirling.
