FILM TOWN

        “Alchemy puts Hawick on the map as Scotland’s Film Town” 
        ⁠— Southern Reporter, June 2018

Film Town is Alchemy Film & Arts’ community engaged creative learning programme.

Launched in summer 2019, Film Town aims to work to the benefit of the Scottish Borders and its unique communities by widening accessibility and inclusion for audiences, participants and partners, and by challenging social, physical and communication barriers. 

Film Town is a project committed to meaningful, reciprocal and enjoyable participation. Film Town projects aim to create positive and supportive working environments, while contributing to Hawick’s economic regeneration through an investment in its cultural identity and development.
