Located in south west Scotland, CAMPLE LINE is an independent arts organisation dedicated to presenting thought-provoking international contemporary art and film for residents of the region and visitors from further afield.

We are a Scottish charitable incorporated organisation. Our charity number is SC047031.



On Thursday 20 JULY we launch a new series of screenings and other activities under the title of Closely Watched Trains. We are delighted to be screening three wonderful short films by filmmakers Rania Stephan, Robert Breer and Artavazd Pelechian, which feature journeys or lost tracks in Lebanon, Japan and Armenia, alongside Basil Wright’s classic Night Mail (1936) – scripted by WH Auden and with sound by Benjamin Britten.

Over the weekend of 22-23 JULY we will be showing films by artists Dryden Goodwin, Salla Tykka, Pilvi Takala and Moufida Fedhila, alongside Pietra Brettkelly’s documentary Maori Boy Genius (2011). Please download the leaflet for WEEKEND TWO | 22-23 JULY here: WEEKEND2_leaflet

Over 22-23 JULY, we will also screen three short films made by pupils in classes P3 and P4 at Penpont Primary School in June. The short films were filmed or shot entirely by the pupils and edited by Emily Tryon:
