Screen Facilities Scotland (SFS) is a trade body affiliated to UK Screen Association representing facilities and services working in the screen, media production, and creative industries.
Members are based across Scotland and many have other offices / workshops / studios elsewhere in the UK, Europe and the USA. Member companies provide an array of specialist services essential to successful screen production in Scotland including: equipment hire, post-production facilities, studio space, visual effects, props, special effects, audio services, animal handling, compliance expertise, insurance, and performing talent.
As a collaborative venture SFS promotes and advocates screen facilities and services available in Scotland; provides data, research, and expertise to reports, research programmes, and case studies; liaises with government, parliament, and public bodies; and pitches for projects as a larger group, or small sub-groups.
SFS formalised as a consortium in 2012. Since then, SFS has become a focus point for its member companies and a strong voice in the wider industry.
