The first Dunoon Film Festival is now counting down for a weekend full of interest, must-see screenings and events for the whole family.
On Saturday 15th June there’s a free drop-in direct filmmaking workshop at the Burgh Hall – anyone interested may come along any time between 11am and 2pm to draw, scratch or paint straight onto 16mm film. The results will be screened at the end of the session.
Then at 3.15pm on at The Studio Cinema there’s a Family Shorts programme, including Scottish and international shorts and animations, as well as several films made by local primary schools and the Burgh Hall’s own YouthSTUFF theatre group.
On Sunday 16th June at 11.30am the Jolly Roger will be run up the mast and sails will be set for Treasure Island. There’ll be Prizes for the best pirate costume.
Then at 2.15pm, storyteller Andy Cannon returns to the Burgh Hall after last year’s performance of Scota-land, this time with a new show, The Lost Art of the Film Explainer. Andy breathes new life into silent films from the earliest days of Scottish cinema. This is particularly timely, fiven that suddenly, for radio, there’s a lot of interest in the role of the audio describer.
Sunday 16th June is also Fathers’ Day, so why not treat Dad to a trip to the cinema – in pirate costume too, if you can twist his arm up his back.
Details and tickets are available online here at the Dunoon Fim Festival website. It’s a great programme – imaginative and full of variety – all screenings you want to see.
