SDI is an internationally recognised documentary research centre at Edinburgh College of Art specialised in documentary training, production and distribution. It was set up in 2004.
Our aim is to stimulate and inspire the documentary scene in Scotland and beyond through focus on creative excellence and unashamed international outlook. We are a community hub where several generations of documentary filmmakers can share and work together across industry and academia.
Our films have played at major film festivals, such as Sundance, Cannes, Hotdocs, Tribeca, Full Frame, Silverdocs, IDFA, Cinema du Reel, Vision du Reel, Leipzig and have picked up major awards and nominations.
In 2007 we set up SDI Productions Ltd, in order to develop a slate of feature documentaries with some of our Bridging the Gap alumni, and enable ambitious co-productions such as "The New Ten Commandments" with Lansdowne Productions.
We also regularly work with a number of freelancers and are always happy to hear from you.
