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.

Increasingly we live our fullest lives online, pursuing life-or-death thrills vicariously through gaming or YouTube videos. But inevitably the separation between the virtual and the real has become less distinct. Virtual worlds can be harnessed in positive ways, to examine the real through fresh eyes, but they can also blind us. Drifting between documentary and fiction, this increasingly vertiginous programme considers the convergence of the world we choose and the world we can never leave behind.
