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.

What's that director bloke doing with all the lovely ladies? Don't tell me I missed them at the event?! What a fool I am!

I want a camera like Master Wyness has got! Trust Mark to be surrounded by wimmin. But it was a great night and I think you'd have no problems filling a screen for seven nights in a row with ODR, cos it's just too cool to keep secret - esp if you tell the film-students at college and RGU, they'll lap it up. I did hear the party wasn't up to much. Ah well, on to bigger and better things, eh? Next time the party'll be at the Savoy and Odeon Leicester Square... :-)

Hi folks, cheers for the comments. It was a fun night, even though the party was next to the toilets.

If I hadn't been chatting to all the VIP's downstairs I may have got a photo with the girls, but I can get that anytime:)
