A Glasgow based creative hub is giving budding filmmakers in Caithness a step up the ladder of success with a new initiative.
Glasgow Media Access Centre (GMAC) Film said it is "delighted" to launch the short filmmaking opportunity called Little Pictures.
Little Pictures is open to anyone over 16 from under represented backgrounds who don’t normally have an opportunity to make a film and who have not been funded to make a film before.
It will commission six short films from new filmmakers across Scotland and is committed to 50 per cent of commissions by women.
Project manager Wilma Smith said: "Little Pictures will encourage new filmmakers to develop their voice and to take creative risks. Filmmakers will receive training, mentoring and support from GMAC Film to make their first film."
She added: "We are seeking out new, diverse voices and help develop talent further, so any new or budding filmmakers in Caithness and surrounding areas are really encouraged to apply."
The filmmakers will also be given further training and information on commissioning and employment opportunities to help kickstart their careers in the Scottish film industry.
