’Hayfiower and I I



Newsflash: kids have brains, and they’re not afraid to use them. So thank goodness for Scotland’s first film festival dedicated to children and young people’s cinema which presents a veritable feast of cerebral stimuli. The Discovery Festival, taking place at Dundee Contemporary Arts and Macrobert, Stirling, will showcase the best of Scottish film as well as award- winning works from 20 countries including eight UK and nine Scottish premieres. Young people will also get the chance to meet and talk with those involved in the industry.

The films on offer have not been chosen by stuffy men in suits or aged film buffs, but vetted by a panel of young consultants all aged between seven and 18. YC member Alasdair Hunter, 17, feels that this is the best way to connect with the audience. ‘If we’ve seen the films already and enjoyed them, then other young people will enjoy them too,’ he says. ‘Letting young people choose the films is the only way to ensure they are really relevant. Some of the films in the festival deal with very ordinary issues, and that’s important as it allows young people to relate to the characters.’ Films are spilt into different age groups, starting at three+ and going up to 15+. As some of them are subtitled, staff are on hand to read them live in the cinema during films for younger children. 0f the many films on offer, which would Alasdair highlight as ‘must—see’? ‘Jargo is my favourite film in the festival. It's so refreshing to see a movie for teenagers that is honest and sincere after being subjected to terrible Hollywood “teen-movies” for so long. For younger ones, Hayflower and Ouiltshoe (pictured) is highly recommended. Everyone I know that has seen loves it.’ The aim of the festival is to show filmmakers the type of films that young people really want to see and Alasdair hopes it will open audiences’ eyes to see beyond the blockbuster. ‘I want expectations to be higher and this festival should make young people want to see films of this quality all the time,’ he says. Watch out Freddie Prinze Junior, your days are numbered. (Morag Bruce).
