Mediatheque at Bridgeton Library, Glasgow

Visit Bridgeton Library in the redeveloped Olympia Cinema and explore the BFI Mediatheque.

Among hundreds of curated collections to explore there’s a special focus on film and television from Scotland in Scottish Reels. This collection brings together titles from the BFI National Archive and Scottish Screen Archive spanning more than a century of Scottish life and culture. The earliest films spotlight industry and commerce in the Edwardian era whilst politics loom large in groundbreaking TV drama Culloden from 1964 and Bill Douglas’ bleak and beautiful Trilogy, 1972-78. With key feature films such as The Wicker Man from 1973 and Shallow Grave from 1994 there really is something for everyone to enjoy.
