Industry Directors Encouraged to enter FilmG 10

It was wonderful to see so many familiar faces at our 10th Anniversary Exhibition. In attendance were FilmG 1 and 2 poster-girl Margaret-Jane Mason, and Vicky Kilgour who appeared in our 2014 adventure poster. Vicky also gave those at home a sneak peek of the event of Facebook live!

Bill MacLeod, Michael Hines, and Matt Lloyd 

We were so glad to see Matt Lloyd from the Glasgow Short Film Festival at the event too, with our exciting new prize for Best Industry Director including a screening at the event. There is also a wonderful £2,500 to be spent on equipment or training up for grabs.

For those considering going for this prize, two of Scottish broadcasting’s best-known directors, Bill MacLeod and Michael Hines, spoke to Donald Campbell from MG ALBA about how they first got into media and what advice they’d offer anyone starting out on their journey.

If you’re under 30, working in media, and interested in entering, be sure to drop us a line!
