It's Take Two.

Scotland's arts funding body is trying for a second time to find the right person to play one of its most important roles - its director of film.

After unsuccessful auditions, or interviews, last year, Creative Scotland is again looking to fill its director of film and media post, which comes with a salary of £55,000 a year.

Creative Scotland has advertised the role, looking for a "strategic thinker with drive and passion who is able to work effectively with a range of creative partners across the arts".

In December, the organisation said it had not found a "suitable candidate" for the new position, a decision that leading producers said had left the industry in a "state of limbo".

Since then, the body, which funds the arts, screen and creative industries, has published a review that urged more funding for film, a doubling of big screen productions and backed the idea of a film studio.

The director of film and media post was first advertised on October 9 last year and is being re-advertised with the same remit and salary.
