A Scottish arts group is busy converting an old 1980s caravan into an eight-seater cinema which it hopes to tour around Southern Scotland.

Moving Images hopes to turn the 1983 Swift Pirouette owned by artist Kerry Jones into a solar-powered “Autonomous film zone” that will travel to rural and urban communities in the south of Scotland screening non-mainstream films and other projects, including films centred around climate change.

The project is one of 20 currently vying for £10,000 match funding from Creative Scotland by crowdfunding. It needs to raise the money by 14 April. More details at https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/funds/creative-scotland-crowdmatch.

Kerry currently lives in a caravan park in Galashiels and is still in the process of updating the caravan for its new role.

It is due to have its first outing at the Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival, due to be held in Hawick in the Borders at the end of April.
