We don’t just screen ’em, we teach young people how to make ’em as well… (and sometimes we make our own…)

As most of you WON’T know, we entered the St Andrew’s University “60hr Film Blitz” short film competition which was held February/March 2015. The screening and awards ceremony were held in the Byre Theatre in St. Andrews.

We’re delighted to tell you that our film ” Walk” won the “Castle Sands Classic” Award (1st Runner-up) and Pete Marshall won the “Best Actor” award!

“Flight” by Laura Wadha

Two young sisters who arrive in Sweden having fled the war in Syria are becoming teenagers in a new world. They try to hold on to the fond memories of their once beautiful home while struggling to deal with the repercussions of growing up surrounded by war.
Laura is a half Scottish/ half Syrian documentary filmmaker and ‘Flight’ follows the journey of her two young cousins, Mera and Maria.
“Flight is a really lovely film, very tender and intimate. Laura’s relationship with the girls shines through. It’s so refreshing to watch a film like this; made from the refugees’ point of view.” – Kim Longinotto
“This story of two sisters’ journey from Syria to Sweden – and how it changes them – is simultaneously uplifting and heart-breaking. That it achieves what it does in such a short time is nothing short of miraculous.” – Outline Magazine 2017
