Coffin Walk (Dir Neil Boyle, 15m)
Set in rural Scotland in 1926, Coffin Walk follows a family of tired and frustrated men – and a Priest, as they reluctantly make their way along the coffin walk to bury the body of a dear departed lover – or at least that’s who they think is in the coffin. A blackly comedic tale of madness, Coffin Walk was filmed in the Cowal area.

Boys Night (Dir James Price, 16m)
When a late night domestic turns violent 12-year-old Reece and his father, Davy, find themselves stranded on the mean and marvellous streets of North Glasgow. On any normal night the journey would have all the makings of a rare adventure, but there’s a serious problem – Davy is very drunk, and it is up to Reece to get him home safely.

Duck Daze (Dir Alison Piper, 14m)
Johnina returns to her childhood home, at last ready to face up to the abuse from her past and wrestle with her personal demons – which include an imaginary duck. Duck Daze is a unique, darkly comic and highly personal tale of survival and triumph created in the wake of Me Too, written and directed by women with a cast of 3:1 women to men – and a duck.

Jealous Alan (Dir Martin Clark, 15m)
Alan, Stuart and Angela are inseparable teenage misfits. Alan and Stuart are best friends for life, though is it as straightforward as that when a girl gets between them? The story of a teenage love triangle in 1990s Scotland, Jealous Alan explores themes of status, friendship, masculinity and the fear of being left behind in youth.
