Film Accolade for Scots Duo

Two students at a Scottish film centre of excellence have had their work chosen for screening at the Edinburgh International Film Festival – taking place next month.

John Douglas Dodds and Catriona Craig – who are at the Scottish Screen Academy, run by Napier University and Edinburgh College of Art – have been selected for the Trailblazers section of the festival.

Trailblazers showcases the work of students and graduates of the Skillset Screen Academies, which are based throughout the UK, with one in Scotland.

Dodds is director of ‘Geriatrics, The Musical’, while Craig is director of ‘The Problem with Pets’.
