Gregory's Girl

New events were announced yesterday for next year's Glasgow Film Festival. They include a school disco and a special tribute to the greatest films never made.

Following in the footsteps of the festivals previous wildly successful event nights, the school disco will be held in SWG3 and will give attendees a choice between watching Gregory's Girl or Clueless before the dancing begins. Football strips and prom dresses are encouraged. "We can’t wait to let our hair down and relive our youth," said festival co-director Allison Gardner.

The Unfilmables will bring together Oscar-nominated composer Mica Levi, video artist Francesca Levi and electronic pioneers Wrangler for music and film including The Colour Of Chips (a UK-set re-imagining of Sergei Parajanov’s The Colour Of Pomegranates) and The Tourist (based on) Claire Noto’s Seventies script, long-regarded as one of the greatest science fiction films never to make it to the big screen).

David Mackenzie's new film Outlaw King, shot in Scotland

A new, dedicated Screen Unit is to be established within Creative Scotland, it was announced today. The unit will be responsible for managing public sector investment and support to capitalise on opportunities in the industry.

"I am encouraged by the progress and clear partnership approach behind the Screen Unit proposals, and I recognise the significant effort that has gone into their production by our agencies, including Creative Scotland," said Culture Secretary Fiona Hyslop, reaffirming the Scottish government's commitment to the film and TV sector.

The news comes just as principal photography wraps on David Mackenzie's latest production, Outlaw King, which tells the story of Robert the Bruce and is one of the most expensive films ever made in Scotland.

Work to translate the plan into action is starting immediately and the Screen Unit is expected to be operational by the end of March. »
