What a week! First and foremost, we are thrilled to be announcing at long last the UK premiere of 'Small Country', at the Highland Cinema in Fort William, on June 27th at 2pm, followed by a short theatrical run. It'll be a special event, with myself in attendance giving a short introduction as well as holding a discussion after the film. If you've been following along with the project and are dying to finally see the film (and are able to get to Fort William), now's your chance! And if not, we will have more announcements coming this year about appearances elsewhere in the UK (and hopefully the Highlands), as well as availability for viewing online on-demand.
Tickets for the 27th are on-sale now, with the additional days becoming available soon (so keep an eye on the site): https://highlandcinema.co.uk/film/small-country-scotia/

In other news, the film also featured on the BBC News homepage this week, where a short interview with myself rose to #3 in trending videos! For a sneak peak at a couple of scenes from the film previously unseen, head over to https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/entertainment-arts-57123245
We are delighted to release this week the official launch trailer for 'Small Country', which marks the completion of the film and its submission to festivals across the UK and internationally. You can view the new trailer below.
What follows is my director's statement on the launch of the film, and its significance to me personally.
