Moving Image Makers Collective

Moving Image Makers Collective (MIMC) is a Scottish Borders based group of filmmakers, filmlovers, writers, artists, and creatives of all types.

MIMC started from a series of workshops run as part of the Scottish Borders Community Filmmaking Initiative by Alchemy Film & Arts in 2014. They meet regularly in various locations around the Borders and always welcome new members. Find them on Facebook for details of their next meeting, and to join the conversation.
