A pioneering showcase that highlights the rich and distinctive craft of British filmmaking. »
For Those In Peril has wowed critics since its screening at Cannes in the spring, and has had very positive reviews since its release in the UK last month. BAFTA Scotland director Alan de Pellette, quoted in the Scotsman, said: “For a first-time director to win an award like this [Best Feature] is a phenomenal achievement. He’s already had a good run of things because his short films have already won awards, he has made his first film at a pretty young age and he got his first film shown at Cannes, which was obviously massive, and now this.”
Huge congratulations to both Paul Wright, producers Mary Burke & Polly Stokes and George Mackay on their beautiful film that fully deserved to win!
