Media release: Chris Quick appointed director of Glasgow Filmmakers Alliance


AN online directory of film and television professionals working in and around Glasgow has appointed its deputy director to the role of director.

The Glasgow Filmmakers Alliance has announced that Chris Quick, who has been in the role since the organisation was established in 2011, will take over the role of director in July. The incumbent director, Andrew O’Donnell, announced last month he was standing down after nearly eight years in the position.

Speaking about his appointment, Quick said: “It is a great privilege to be taking over from Andrew at the Glasgow Filmmakers Alliance. Whilst I don’t anticipate being in the role for as long as Andrew has, in my time as director I will strive to make sure that the GFA continues to be a useful tool for independent filmmakers and that we continue to support our emerging talent.”

Quick studied television production at the Glasgow Metropolitan College and ran the post-production branch of Quick Off The Mark Productions from 2009 to 2016.

His editing credits include In Search of La Che, The Greyness of Autumn, Electric Faces and Mountain which he won the Best Editor accolade for at the Dublin Independent Film Festival in 2018.

Quick will take up his new position on 1 July 2019.
