DEAR PETER : Creative Edinburgh Awards 2016

With the shortlist announced in The Skinny, I am excited to say that I have been nominated for The Independent Award for my short film, DEAR PETER. The award is for an outstanding contribution and activity from a professional individual. Good times!

Creative Edinburgh is the largest network of creatives in Edinburgh, and is committed to celebrating, advancing the value and impact of its members, both locally and internationally.

As mentioned in The Skinny, Creative Edinburgh says they “shine a light on what the creatives of Edinburgh have achieved over the past year,” and highlight “innovative thinking, great ideas and work that you feel proud of, no matter how big or small.”

The fifth annual award ceremony will take place 10 Nov at Central Hall, Edinburgh.

Dear Peter
Dir. Scott Willis [2016]

After discovering a large collection of handwritten postcards in a secondhand shop, filmmaker Scott Willis begins a journey to track down their owner. The messages on the postcards create a picture of unknown man called Peter.

But with the collection spanning over seventy years, a reunion seems unlikely. Who was Peter? How did his life end? And what happens to us when our time is up?
