Welcome to Montrose LandxSea Film Fest!

Join Scotland's leading event for films and discussions that spark green ideas and actions. 

LandxSea is Scotland's first environmental film festival, which launched in September 2023. Rooted in the coastal town of Montrose in North East Scotland, our festival presents an annual September weekend filled with ground-breaking climate-focused films, guest speakers, and thought-provoking discussions, along with special events throughout the year. Our focus lies in exploring the complex connections between land and sea, showcasing a diversity of environmental narratives from a multitude of global perspectives. The festival is hosted in the heart of the town at the community-owned Montrose Playhouse, a state-of-the-art multi-screen cinema & arts hub that opened in 2021.
