'Young Hearts Run Free' + Director Q&A and Networking

Scottish Actors received an email this week from the producer of a new independent Scottish film. The content of the email is reproduced here:

I am Andy Mark Simpson the writer, director and producer of independent feature film 'Young Hearts Run Free' which was made on a tiny budget with my own money but has been getting attention in the national press (*** Total Film, *** The Telegraph, 'Heartfelt' The Guardian), has won awards at festivals in Britain, USA and India and has been released in UK cinemas. The special screening events are more involving and have a Q&A so audiences can meet the team and ask anything they like about the award-winning performances, directing, production and innovative new distribution strategy and can learn how this film (which features 1970s period detail, scenes down a coal-mine and a full riot) was made for 'less than the price of a family car'.

'Young Hearts Run Free'
Friendship, First Loves, Rebellion!
1974; during a violent coal-miners strike in a quiet village a teenage artist falls in love with the gorgeous new girl but their attempts to escape cause him to betray his family, community and best friends. This award-winning coming of age story is an uplifting and soulful mix of cool 1970s styles, warm-hearted romance, teenage angst and gritty social realism.

'closer in kind to Brassed Off and The Full Monty, fusing politics and romance’–***The Telegraph
‘Heartfelt’ and ‘warmhearted, with evidence that Simpson will have more to offer in his next film.’-The Guardian.
