Paisley artist Falconer Houston is well established as a painter and ceramicist, yet his many short films from the 1960s and '70s have been overlooked. He frequently worked with children and young people, tackling ambitious historical narratives. His film about the Covenanters, Cry of the Peewee, won Best Film at the 1969 Scottish Amateur Film Festival here at GFT, or the Cosmo as it was then known. Several of his works have now been restored for new audiences, and GSFF will present these in public for the first time, introduced by Falconer himself.
