28 August – 4 September 2016
Screenplay is 10 this year! To celebrate our birthday we took a look back at some of the amazing films and guests we’ve had the pleasure to host over the years.
Shetland’s annual film festival is curated by celebrated film historian Linda Ruth Williams and film critic Mark Kermode alongside our own Kathy Hubbard. It features a feast of film screenings, lectures and panel discussions involving national and international film industry professionals and film academics. Screenplay also has a strong local flavour, provided by the work of local film makers of all ages and an outreach programme taking in community halls and education.
Last year’s festival includes 70 film screenings, 10 Q&A sessions, 7 education screenings, 4 workshops, 2 film quizzes, 2 community halls, 2 care centres, 1 live pianist and a whole lot of cats…
Programme information for Screenplay 2016 will be announced in early August. Film fans will be able to buy advanced tickets to all events with a ScreenCard – on sale from 5th July.
For a flavour of what the festival can offer take a look at last year’s programme
Did you know we also hold a series of Education Screenings for schools groups during the festival? Take a look at this years programme (and don’t worry, there will be public screenings of all these films too!)
