, the feature debut by British director Lucy Cohen, in which a mother-and-daughter holiday to Cornwall takes a dark turn after a discovery in a tin mine changes everything. Scottish icon Billy Connolly will take centre stage with a brand-new restoration of the little-seen 1976 documentary Billy Connolly: Big Banana Feet, which follows Billy on his legendary 1975 tour of Ireland, while a more contemporary Scottish comedy icon will round off the festival with the world premiere of the closing film, Janey. The movie is an honest, moving and often hilarious documentary about Glasgow comedian Janey Godley, interweaving stories from her life with footage from her “Not Dead Yet” tour, in the wake of her terminal cancer diagnosis.

High-profile UK premieres include those of lker Çatak’s The Teachers’ Lounge [+leggi anche:
