GUESTS AT DUNOON FILM FESTIVAL

Published: 27 October 2018

Over three days Dunoon Film Festival celebrates some of Scotland’s finest filmmaking talent, past and present. Where I Am is Here: Margaret Tait 100 is a free event playing tribute to one of Scotland’s most innovative and stridently independent filmmakers, including a selection of her works, a short documentary by Marissa Keating and an introduction by Laura Dolan from Glasgow Woman’s Library. Director Douglas King and actor Darren Osborne will be in town for a screening of Super November, a mumblecore-style romantic comedy and Orwellian dystopia starring Josie Long as a Clydebank librarian.

Dunoon will welcome a number of other exciting guests including Glaswegian director John McPhail who will attend a sure-to-be fascinating Q&A following a screening of his Scottish BAFTA-nominated unique zombie musical mash-up Anna and the Apocalypse. Other guests include; Connor Heaney from the Ray and Diana Harryhausen Foundation, who will introduce a 60th anniversary celebration of The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, and Trevor Griffiths, who will present a free talk on Scottish comedy legend Billie Ritchie: The Man Who Made the World Laugh.

Felipe Bustos Sierra's will be in attendance to present his heartfelt documentary Nae Pasaran, which will close the festival on Sunday 11 November. This is the incredible true story of the East Kilbride factory workers who managed to ground half of Chile's Air Force, from the other side of the world.
