Very cool indeed. Not sure who all from Sigma will be there to present, hopefully Gillian, and we can learn more about the Advance Party 2. Advance Party -this a trilogy- of course featured the award winning Red Road, directed by Andrea Arnold and starring Katie Dickie and Tony Curran. The second film Rounding Up Donkeys or just Donkeys from Morag Mckinnon and also starring Katie Dickie due for release later this year.
Sigma Films was created by Gillian Berrie, director David Mackenzie and actor Alastair Mackenzie.
