‘DADDY’S GIRL’, the Scottish short film which has been winning awards at Film Festivals around the globe, has been selected for competition in the Official selection 2001 at the Cannes International Film Festival.
The ten-minute film, which has been made under BBC2’s 10 x 10 short film scheme and funded jointly by BBC, Scottish Screen, The British Film Institute (BFI) and the Glasgow Film Office, was written by John Maley, directed by Irvine Allan and produced by Young Miracle/Antonine Films.
At Cannes it will be up against five other hopefuls in the short film section of the festival.
John Archer, Chief Executive of Scottish Screen, said: “One of the most exciting things we do at Scottish Screen is to enter the films we handle under various other schemes for international competition. To have one accepted for Cannes, which is the most important international film festival in the world, is really thrilling.”
The Cannes International Film Festival takes place from May 9 to May 20. Scottish Screen have a fully serviced office in the centre of Cannes for the use of Scottish filmmakers attending the festival. (CD)
