At long last, Scotland is getting its first film school. Though it won't be officially inaugurated until later this week, it has been revealed that the academy will be jointly run by Napier University and Edinburgh College of Art. The school, which will enroll its first students this fall, is part of a network of seven new film schools across the UK. What's most notable about the schools are their funding sources: the National Lottery (from which they will share £6.5 million/year) and the Skillset Film Skills Fund, and organization jointly funded by film and television industries and UK governments. Fantastic.
