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.



We have a busy autumn ahead at CAMPLE LINE. Our OCT-DEC programme is now available HERE: Autumn_Leaflet

We are looking forward to some new activity as part of our Closely Watched Trains programme, including a 16mm screening on Saturday 14 October featuring films by James Benning and Stan Brakhage, and our first two Reading Group meetings on Wednesday 11 October and Wednesday 22 November at 7 pm. We are also hosting a talk about Britain’s Railway Cinemas by Dr Rebecca Harrison on  Sunday 26 November.

We will be recommencing our May You Live In Interesting Times programme this October, with a screening of Sarah Polley’s award-winning documentary Stories We Tell (Canada, 2012). You can view the trailer for the film here

Throughout November, we will be delighted to host The Last Silent Movie (2007), a two-part installation by artist Susan Hiller (b 1940) on loan from the British Council Collection. For this installation, the artist has brought together voices of the last speakers of a number of extinct or endangered languages. Find out a little more about this extraordinary work here
