Edinburgh Napier University and Screen Academy Scotland are delighted to host an audience with Dr Allan Shiach and Gillies MacKinnon. 

Dr Allan Shiach is an Honorary Professor of Film at Edinburgh Napier University and writing as Allan Scott, he is an acclaimed screenwriter and film producer. His writing credits include Don’t Look Now (1974) and four other films with Nic Roeg as well as adapting the Pat Barker novel Regeneration which tells the story of Siegfried Sassoon and the other 1st World War Poets brought together at Craiglockhart Hospital. 

Regeneration (1997) was directed by Scottish film maker Gillies MacKinnon. Over the past thirty years Gillies has directed many successful projects for film and television and he is currently completing post-production on Whisky Galore (2016) which was filmed in Scotland last summer. 

During this event Allan and Gillies will talk about working together on Regeneration and the collaboration between screenwriter and film director.
