A filmmaker from Falkirk showed real Gael force to land an award for his new production.

Paul Moran attended this year’s star-studded FilmG National Gaelic Film Awards in Glasgow’s Old Fruit Market last week and took home the gong for Best Drama in the adult category.

His short film ‘Latha Eile, Saoghal Eile’ (Another Day, Another Life) is an emotional tale of Eilidh and the direction her life takes when her past catches up with her.

FilmG has unearthed a wealth of creative talent within the Gaelic community since it was established six years ago, and Paul’s film was one of over 70 entries in this year’s competition.

The young director rubbed shoulders with the familiar faces from the big and small screens, including ‘Chewing the Fat’s Greg Hemphill and Glasgow-born actor Gary Lewis who starred in ‘Billy Elliot’ and ‘Gangs of New York’.

FilmG judge, Calum Angus MacKay, said: “FilmG provides aspiring filmmakers like Paul with a fantastic platform for showcasing their talents and I thoroughly enjoyed judging what was on offer this year.”
