Central Scotland Documentary Festival announces 2022 line-up
The Central Scotland Documentary Festival unveiled their programme for 2022 which aims to celebrate creative documentary and non-fiction filmmaking from around the world.
This year’s edition will count with screenings taking place from 3rd to 7th November across Macrobert’s Filmhouse and Playhouse, Stirling, plus a special immersive event around Brett Morgen’s David Bowie documentary, Moonage Daydream, on the Mainhouse stage.
2022’s Audience and Jury awards will be presented on Monday 7 November, with 13 films eligible to win the £1000 prize.
This year will feature 1 world premiere, 2 European premieres, 5 UK premieres and 9 Scottish premieres.
The festival will open with the Scottish premiere of The Oil Machine by Edinburgh-based filmmaker Emma Davie, which explores our economic, historical, and emotional relationships with oil.
European premieres include Taimoor Choudhry’s Real Fur, an undercover investigation of the fur farming industry in Canada.
Other highlights of the festival include the world premiere of The Ballad of Bessie May, an exploration of the LARP community, by last year’s Festival Jury Award winner Oliver Guy-Watkins. As well as Savage Waters an intimate portrait of a group of modern adventurers as they follow clues left in a 19th century treasure-hunter’s journal to find and ride a mythical wave in some of the most dangerous waters of the Atlantic.
This year the festival will close with one of the last screenings of My Old School, the true story of Scotland’s most notorious imposter, as a celebration of the film’s hugely successful run.
Grahame Reid, Head Curator for Cent Scot Doc Fest has said: “We are thrilled to bring this programme of innovatively told stories from both award-winning filmmakers and inspiring new filmmaking talent to audiences this year. Since opening up our festival submissions last year, it has been a joy to see so many bold and exciting pieces of work coming in from both Scotland and around the world. 2022 represents our most wide-ranging programme to date and we are excited to continue building what Cent Scot Doc Fest can be and to welcome new audiences joining us on our journey.”
