Celebrations all round at SDI as Scottish BAFTA announce this years’s nominations. We are thrilled that SDI are up for awards this year in addition to some of our friends.
SDI Productions’ Seven Songs for a Long Life by Amy Hardie is up for Best Single Documentary. The documentary, set in Strathcarron Hospice, explores our changing relationship with death and has had a brilliant reception at festivals world-wide and we are delighted for its nomination. Also nominated in this category is Mike Day’s Islands and the Whales. Developed through our Consultancies scheme, the film looks at Faroe whale hunters, providing a rare insight into a unique community.
Lindsay Brown’s Swan, a true-life short film following the daily life of Sami and her sensory challenged daughter April has been nominated for Best Short Film. Swan was one of this year’s Bridging the Gap films, developed in response to the theme WOMEN.
We are also delighted for Bridging the Gap alumnus Duncan Cowles, co-director of Isabella, which has been nominated in the Best Short Film category as well. A strong documentary presence in this category, after last year’s win by Mining Poems or Odes.
We wish all nominees the best of luck and are looking forward to the ceremony in Glasgow on Sunday 6th November.
