Write_Shoot_Cut-12Presented by Screen Education Edinburgh in partnership with Filmhouse, the Write Shoot Cut platform is dedicated to celebrating and showcasing independent short films from Scotland.

This month we have five short films made by Scottish based talent including laugh out loud comedy, thoughtful drama, beautiful imagery and insanity personified.

Each film will be followed with a Q&A with the filmmakers involved, giving the audience the chance to enjoy what they see and gain an insight into the creative process.

If you are a filmmaker, or someone with an interest in Scottish film and a desire to see something out of the ordinary, then this is an excellent opportunity to connect with the local scene, watch some great films, network afterwards in the bar and meet potential collaborators.

Monday 31st August 6.15pm at Filmhouse £6/5 
Tickets available here. 
We recommend you buy in advance. 

Line up:

Willy and His Balls

That’s a lot to pack in and that’s why my Christmas was spent ill in bed with a nasty chest infection; when I stopped…

Here’s some fascinating information on how everyone can use that, and why:

James Clear’s ‘How to Be Confident and Reduce Stress in 2 Minutes Per Day’.
