We're very happy here at Hopscotch to announce that all 5 of the recently commissioned Scottish Shorts have now been completed. They're already making an impact on the global festival scene, with Exchange and Mart kick starting the year in competition at the Sundance Film Festival in January , and screening in competition in Berlin and Glasgow in February. Seagulls will also be competing in Berlin in February and we're expecting a great festival run for all of the films. You can check out the festival screenings here: Sundance, Berlin, Glasgow
Executive producer Carolynne Sinclair Kidd said of the project: "I'm totally in awe of the writing, directing and producing talent that has come together to make these new short films. Every single one of the films has been crafted with love and enthusiasm and the results are outstanding. This is short form storytelling at its very best.'
