Fort William one day line-up announced
An exhilarating dance-off, footage from a long lost Scottish expedition to Canada, a visit to the end of the world and a trip back to 1970s Belfast are just some of the experiences awaiting Fort William audiences on Saturday 6 July.
With Screen Machine celebrating 15 years on the road, we’re adding to our line-up of Epic, The Great Gatsby and Star Trek Into Darkness with a one day film festival in Fort William featuring titles that will only be shown once.
At 11am we’ll have the new dance comedy, All Stars. Ethan (Theo Stevenson) and Jaden (Akai, Sky 1’s Got to Dance) have a plan – recruit a crew, stage a talent show, raise lots of money and save The Garage (their youth club) from demolition…all whilst Ethan impresses the girl of his dreams with his dancing skills.
Treasures From the Far Fur Country will be uncovered at 2pm as film producer Chris Nikkel introduces a lost film from 1920, which documents a coast-to-coast journey across Canada by Scottish fur traders in 1919.
Then, at 5.30, we head to Greenland with Village at the End of the World, a fascinating new documentary which looks at rural life in a small village for teenager, Lars. He’s not interested in being a hunter like his family and friends, but how can he escape to something better?
Finally, we end the day with the hilarious and heartfelt Good Vibrations, a fictionalised look at the world of Belfast’s godfather of punk, Terri Hooley, who opened the city’s Good Vibration record store, discovered The Undertones and inspired a generation.
Tickets for the 11am and 2pm films will be just £3 and our 5.30 and 8.30 titles will be £5.
