Last Exit to Ricklesburgh: Episode One is now available to watch on YouTube!
When Chaff and Adrian rent a house in the little-known town of Ricklesburgh, they begin to discover that nothing is as it seems and the people that live there are anything but normal. A great philosopher once wrote, sometimes it’s necessary to go a long distance out of the way in order to come back a short distance correctly. Obviously this great philosopher had never been to Ricklesburgh.

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts in Scotland (BAFTA Scotland) has announced the nominations for the BAFTA Scotland New Talent Awards 2016.
Last Exit to Ricklesburgh: Episode One has been nominated in the Best Entertainment category, alongside two other nominees.
The annual awards ceremony recognises, inspires and celebrates the diverse array of emerging practitioners from all over Scotland and gives up-and-coming screen industry talent an all-important platform to showcase their work to the wider industry.
36 nominations have been selected across 12 categories by juries made up of industry professionals.
The winners will be unveiled at a glittering awards ceremony held for the first time at Drygate Brewery, Glasgow, on Thursday 14 April and will be hosted by author, broadcaster and journalist, Muriel Gray.
The winners from each category will go on to compete for the prestigious award of Best New Work, supported by Channel 4.
Glasgow Short Film Festival, the largest competitive short film festival in Scotland, returns for a ninth year to champion new international film talent and celebrate diverse forms of cinematic expression.
Taking inspiration from the post-punk cinematic new wave of early eighties New York, GSFF declares war on all boring films. From the conflict zones of Syria to sexual role-playing in suburban Germany; whether reworking Hollywood classics or venturing into the virtual world – this year’s programme is crammed with films which seek to transgress limits of morality, convention or expectation.
With core Scottish and international competitions, myriad masterclasses, screenings and discussions, expect five heady days foregrounding short film’s potential to push at the boundaries of cultural expression, to establish new forms of storytelling, to shock but also to thrill, question and offer glimpses of new ways of thinking.
In association with UNESCO and to join in the celebrations, ESFF are screening a 1920 version of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde as well as a selection of Edinburgh and Scottish-made Gothic short horrors and suspense films! From rental properties in a neighbourhood populated by bizarre inhabitants to sinister nuns with a penchant for brain surgery to Nosferatu-esque dream demons, there’s something unsettling around every corner.
The screening will take place on Sunday 15 November at Summerhall from 7:30pm. Come and join us for an evening of fantastic films and excellent beers!
Screening their regular, eclectic and diverse programme of outstanding and award-winning contemporary British and short cinema in November 2015, the festival is hosting films and guests from the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival, screening Italian shorts curated by the Sardinia Film Festival, hosting a night of Edinburgh Gothic shorts (of which Last Exit to Ricklesburgh is part of) celebrating Robert Louis Stevenson’s birth by showing the 1920 silent movie short film ‘Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde’ and hosting special retrospective screenings of short film work by the Student Academy Award nominated film-maker and award-winning artist Damon Mohl.
