About Where I Am

Where I Am is a generative tour, which explores a deep history of artists’ moving image in Scotland over the past 100 years.

Taking its title from Margaret Tait’s experimental film work Where I Am Is Here (1964), this project showcases the rich tradition of artists’ filmmaking in Scotland, and begins a conversation with audiences, venues and artists about what might constitute a distinctly Scottish tradition in both a national and international context.

This spring and summer, each of our six host venues will adapt the programme in response to their own context, by adding a work that they commissioned or is particularly resonant to their area; organising a live event that roots the discussion in their region; or developing a series of talks and readings with their local audiences.

As the project progresses, the tour will change and expand beyond the original programme.

This project is supported by Film Hub Scotland, part of the BFI’s Film Audience Network.
