NEDS

Written and directed by the Cannes award-winning Scottish actor (My Name Is Joe), NEDs stars Conor McCarron as a young man who joins a gang of NEDs (Non-Educated Delinquents).

As his rage and frustration within their savage life on the streets spin him further and further out of control, he finds himself left with one extraordinary chance at redemption.

The cast includes Mullan, Louise Goodall and Gregg Forest.

A BOY CALLED DAD

The debut feature from BAFTA short film winner Brian Percival follows the story of a boy thrust into early adulthood when he becomes a father at the age of 14. Newcomer, Kyle Ward, delivers an impressive performance as the young boy and Ian Hart (Backbeat, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone) plays the boy’s father forced to confront his son’s newfound situation and help usher him into a life with increased responsibilities, that neither of them have any choice but to embrace.
