Shot over two weeks, one in early June and one in early October - two steps ahead of Brexit and Trump - the debut feature from director Douglas King and writer Josie Long is half rom-com, half dystopian nightmare. Produced on a micro budget, the pair put together an impressive cast that includes Sean Biggerstaff, James Allenby-Kirk and Sanjeev Kohli. The film also features cameos from the best of Glasgow's comedy scene. Josie wants love, her best friend Darren wants excitement. The first half of the film sees the start of a summer that glitters with potential. The romance and the adventure have gone south by the winter. Along with the country. How do people keep their lives together when the world around them seems to be falling apart?
Director: Douglas King
Writer: Josie Long
Jim Galloway – The Life of Jazz
Scots Canadian Jim Galloway (1936-2014) from Dalry outside Glasgow became Canada’s ambassador of jazz. Galloway’s saga is an essential tale of an immigrant who launched an international career from his adopted home. It is also a story about the global transmission of African American music, America’s greatest gift to the world, and of its resonance in the twenty-first century.
Galloway studied at Glasgow College of Art. He emigrated to Toronto in 1964. He was recognized internationally as a wondrous saxophonist collaborating with stalwarts like Buddy Tate and Jay McShann. Co-founder of the Toronto Jazz Festival, Galloway also made his mark as an impresario and music journalist.
Director & Producer: James Cullingham
