Screening of vintage short films

Strathard Community Trust has held two screenings of vintage short films, most recently on 22nd January 2011, which included footage of Aberfoyle, Loch Lomond, Loch Katrine, Inversnaid, Port of Menteith, Duke’s Pass, Callander, Loch Ard, Comer, Glen Finglas dam and more.

Both screenings were a great success with more than 150 people turning up to see the films – and most stayed to see the entire two hours of footage. This confirms the huge local interest in the history and heritage of Strathard.

The 18 copyrighted clips that were screened were sourced from and supplied by the then ‘Scottish Screen Archive’, now the Moving Image Archive, and date to between the 1920s and the 1970s.
