Here are a few photos from the Aberdeen City and Shire film festival gala, last Friday. As you can see it was a fun night with a capacity crowd at the screening. Being introduced by the Provost and Lord Provost (mayor) of Aberdeen city and shire was a bonus.

Attending the festival were the lead actors Patrick Wight and Scott Ironside, along with several of the cast - Julia Stewart, John Lovett, Alistair Ritchie, Ronald Stirton and Ken McRae. Funnily enough everybody wanted their photo taken with Julia and not me! I'm wearing a wig and heels at the next festival

Director bloke, Mark Stirton and other producer bloke Michael Clark (Kerwin Robertson the other producer had a family party on and couldn't make it, splitter!) had a Q&A session after the massively enjoyable screening. Most of the questions were interesting so there was no violence.

Afterwards we went to the party hosted by the organisers. Half of a small pub was devoted to the event and we got the half with the toilets. There is now word of One Day Removals getting a week's run the the Belmont cinema, that would be great. I'll let you know how we get on with that.

As usual all the photos are by photo mage - Mark Wyness. Many thanks.

One Day Removals wow's Aberdeen Film Festival

The 1st Aberdeen City and Shire Film Festival opened with a bang on Friday. The Sell out screening of our movie 'One Day Removals,' was a huge success and the audience literally laughed their faces off. Attending the festival were Director, Mark Stirton,
lead actors Patrick Wight and Scott Ironside and several other cast and crew. Oh, and me of course.

The night went really well, even the tiny party afterwards near the toilets at 'the Hub.' There will be a full photo review in next few days.
