28 August – 6 September 2015
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.
This 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… See the complete list of events.
Special guests this year include Mark Gatiss, Lindsay Duncan, Candida Doyle, Carol Morley and Cairo Cannon, plus a skype interview with Joshua Oppenheimer.
Film fans also have the opportunity to gain unlimited access to all Screenplay screenings, workshops and Q&As as well as exclusive entry to the Screenplay Guest reception with a Screen Card. To start planning your viewing take a look a the online programme now!
