Getting here

We avoid the word ‘best’ in describing our competition films. Rather, the six programmes of the Bill Douglas Award showcase new cinema from around the world that reflects the qualities found in the work of Scotland’s greatest filmmaker: honesty, formal innovation and the supremacy of image and sound in cinematic storytelling. Several of the filmmakers will be in attendance to take part in short Q&As after each screening.

Stories from the periphery, of grifters, the disenfranchised and those seeking an alternative way of living. A rental van is the setting for three very different stories of interference in the lives of others. A Greek woman, suddenly made homeless, tries to hold down her job. In Finland, people stalk motorway verges looking for roadkill to eat. An Iranian farmer stops at nothing to retrieve his stolen cow. A typhoon threatens a small town in the Philippines, whilst a loner in the woods waits for the apocalypse.
