Event description

Description

We are delighted to offer a unique and educational screening event which explores Scots language through film. Before the screening of Wes Anderson's film adaptation of Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr. Fox, our audience will enjoy an excerpt of the Scots translation of the book, Sleekit Mr. Tod, read by special guest and Scots Scriever, Hamish MacDonald.

We have recently created a brand new educational resource called Scotland on Film. In this resource, there is a specific focus on Scots language and Fantastic Mr. Fox, including a number of activities you can explore with your pupils following the event. 

Download the Scotland on Film Resource here.

We will also invite everyone who attends to write a review of the film in Scots which will be entered into an exclusive competition. A short workshop on how to write effective reviews will also be included.
