RFFF 2015

The Raptor Filmz Short Scottish Film Fest 2015 is rather unbelievably going ahead.

Now in its third year, the only annual film fest dedicated to short films with links to Scotland (that we know of) with cash prizes (well cheque), individual role awards, director Q&A, judge and audience prizes, all filmed and assembled for DVD.

Some early details:
Location: The Bathgate Regal Theatre, West Lothian
Date: 7pm-9:30pm Friday night 23rd Jan 2015.

Film entry deadline: midnight on New Year's Eve 2014
Entry fee: £1 per minute of your film's length rounded up. So if your film is 9 mins 35 seconds, it’s 10*£1 = £10.

Rules: Your film must have been completed in 2014, and have some relation to Scotland (story, location, music, actors, director etc.)
Networking: YES
New this year: Acceptance speeches! Decent transport links! Buy DVDs of earlier festivals!

Tickets on the door £5.
One free ticket per film entered.

Sound good? Please spread the word : the more entries, the bigger the prizes!

The winner of the Best Actor award for our first ever Raptor Filmz Short Scottish Film Festival in 2012, Declan Michael Laird, for his very convincing role in Colin Ross Smith's great film 'The Lost Purse', has been kind enough to tell us about how taking home the award gave him a boost.

'It was a great honor for me when I won the prize of 'Best Actor' at the Raptor Filmz Festival for my role in the 'Lost Purse'. I had not been acting long, maybe a year prior to me winning the award and I think it really gave me confidence and faith in myself in deciding that this was what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I have never looked back since then. Now I live in Los Angeles and audition for some of the biggest projects getting made and compete with the very best of the best. Raptor is great because it gives the film community in Scotland a place to shine and have their work showcased. Which in turn allows young actors like myself an outlet for their talent and passion, I would encourage all aspiring filmmakers and actors alike to support this festival. I may not be where I am now without it.'

Declan is going to be joining us as a judge for this year's festival and hopefully be there on the night as well on Jan 23rd at the Bathgate Regal from 7pm. Thanks Declan, we wish you all the best in your career!
