In addition to the AHRC’s generous funding of Calling the Shots, we had several project partners who  made in-kind commitments to help support our research.

Our partners included key para-industry institutions such as the BFI, BECTU, and WFTV (UK), as well as regional arts institutions like Harbour Lights Cinema and the Shetland Film Festival. Each supported our research and impact activities in vital ways that range from the raw data on film production from the BFI to contacts for interviews from WFTV (UK). Our launch was held at the Shetland Film Festival, and we hosted other impact events locally with Harbour Lights and in London with BEV. All recorded interviews will be stored with the BECTU oral history archive.
