The Hermit of Treig won the audience voting award at the 2022 Glasgow Film Festival, out of seven films nominated.
Director Lizzie MacKenzie said: “Wow wow wow! As if it wasn’t an honour enough as a Highland lassie to premier my first film at Glasgow Film Festival, winning the audience award is just magic.I’m so chuffed that Ken has charmed the audiences much like he charmed me during our first ever encounter that sparked his whole thing off. Now for the long hike into the woods to break the news over a glass of birch wine! From all Team Hermit, a massive thanks.”
The Hermit of Treig releases to cinemas on March 25th, and the broadcast version is available on BBC iPlayer.
I co-edited the film with Ling Lee.
The 68th annual Cannes Film Festival is scheduled to be held from 13 to 24 May 2015. This year's jury president Uwe Boll will not announce the line-up until later in April, but here are three films that I hope are included:
Garden of Storms - Dir. Frank Fustian
Let me know in the comments below what films you think should be welcomed to the red carpets of Cannes this coming May. Or don't. Whatever.
FLASHBULB is a 10-minute drama about the power of memory in family relationships.
Obsessed with recreating a happy memory from childhood, Daniel, a reclusive young man, builds an elaborate machine to help him regress to a past where he was more content. However, troubling memories of his estranged alcoholic father prevent him from happily dwelling in his ideal memories.
The film, which I wrote and directed, will be screening at the 2014 Ickle Film Fest in Dundee, Scotland, during the 18th to the 21st of September. The programme is still to be determined.
More info can be found here and STV published an article about the festival here
