Film industry gathers to support Glasgow Film Festival

A star studded line up of screen greats such as Ken Loach, Peter Mullan and Daniella Nardini are today at the UGC Cinema in Renfrew Street in Glasgow for the ninth Real to Reel Film Festival, created by Cardonald College, Glasgow.
Legendary Film Director Ken Loach (currently filming in Glasgow) is to make a speech on why he is so keen to return to Glasgow and Scotland time and time again to make films.
The acclaimed director and actor Peter Mullan, patron of the Real to Reel Film Festival, opened the ceremony via video as he is currently on location in LA.
"I am delighted to be patron of The Real to Reel Film Festival. I feel that the basic ideology of Real to Reel facilitates a great chance for new talent, based solely on merit and regardless of culture and budget providing a genuine opportunity for new filmmakers from the international working classes," Mr Mullan said.
The ceremony is being presented by BBC Scotland's Janice Forsyth and award presenters include Daniella Nardini (This Life, Sirens, Rough Treatment) Gary Lewis (Billy Elliot, Gangs of New York), Martin Compston (Sweet Sixteen) Kathleen McDermott (Morven Callar) among others.
