On the 29th of March 2016 the First Act Film Festival took place in the Center for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow. Some really impressive films were shown, for example the winner of the award „Best Film“, „Kyla and Kyle“, a drama about a jung trans gender woman and her family. You can read more about this film here.
The talks delivered by Ian Smith (Producer of Mad Max fury road and Fifth Element) and others made clear that with all the potential that is there in the the jung film makers, the scottish film industry still has to grow to make it possible to make a living of it.
As part of the organisation team I’m proud about the success and sure that the festival will be back next year.
