Glasgow Short Film Festival 2019

SLAP officially selected to screen at the Glasgow Short Film Festival and is nominated for the Scottish Short Film Award! Last night it played to a full house at the CCA and I heard the audience gasp in all the right places!!! Such a buzz!!!   Thank you GSFF19 for selecting my film! 

Also tonight at the CCA, I’ve been invited to curate a Blueprint B-Roll programme of short films that will screen tonight at 21.15. I’ve selected films by the likes of Lynne Ramsay, Peter Mullan, Roy Andersson, Bruce Nauman and more. These are just some of the films and filmmakers/artists who have left a powerful mark on me over the years! Can’t wait to see them all in one place! 

(Oh and I’ve also been alerted by the GSFF programmer that my chosen films were expensive to buy so lucky us) ha! X
