Rural Nations CIC is an artist led organisation based in the Outer Hebrides producing  and promoting film and theatre work in the region and making this accessible to all our rural communities.

Recent projects include the Hebrides International Film Festival, now in it's 3rd year, Arts Nan Eilean which takes international and national touring theatre performances to local venues in our communities and DigiHeb a youth film making initiative.

In 2017 Rural Nations CIC will be producing a women's touring theatre show Deeds not Words, launching HEBCinema, a 4 venue touring community cinema club in Lewis & Harris and supporting the formation of a community film collective to provide a connected hub for makers in the isles to produce work locally.
