Scottish environmental filmmaker and Celtic music producer Cameron Mackay (He/Him) aims to use his film and music work to spark new connections between audiences and nature, showcase solutions to the climate crisis and celebrate contemporary traditional cultural heritage in Scotland.


Since screening his first film (a climate documentary about an expedition to Greenland) at the Glasgow IMAX theatre in 2014, Cameron has spent the last decade telling impact-driven stories that combine traditional culture and natural history. This has included producing and presenting digital short-form content for BBC Scotland’s “The Social” platform, delivering Glasgow Science Centre’s COP26 engagement videos, and producing Climate Action: Highlands and Islands, a 30-minute documentary featuring ten stories of community-led climate action from Lochaber to Shetland.


Cameron’s films have been shown at 13 film festivals around the world including winning Best International Music Video at the Malabar Music Festival in India and being semi-finalist at the Sunday Shorts Film Festival in London. His work is also regularly utilised to deliver impact in the environmental sector and has been screened in the COP26 Blue Zone, featured in the RSGS’ Climate Solutions training and been distributed as education resources with Education Scotland.


Cameron’s musical background lies in performing fiddle/guitar and touring in cèilidh (Scottish traditional dance) bands and has seen him gig and record throughout the traditional music sector, playing at events such as Shennaghys Jiu Festival in the Isle of Man and featuring in the Bogha-frois: Queer Voices in Folk concert at Celtic Connections.


His music spans genres of Celtic folk, soundtrack and electronic music and he regularly works with music libraries to produce tracks for film and TV, most recently contributing to Cavendish Music’s album Alba: Songs from Scotland. Cameron’s independent releases explore how contemporary influences can be incorporated into traditional folk with his three latest releases being featured on BBC Introducing.


With an academic background in climate change with the universities of Glasgow and Cambridge, Cameron set up his film and music production company in 2019 to utilise emotive media as one of the most effective ways of delivering impact, engaging new audiences in discussions about sustainability, and inspiring behaviour change.
