“It’s great to shout about Scottish talent,” said awards host Edith Bowman.

“It can only then encourage a new generation of creatives to come through and be those directors, writers and be in all those crews that are in such high demand at the minute because there’s so much being made in Scotland.

“We need to keep training up and that’s where BAFTA Scotland comes in to make sure that all these young people who are desperate to be in the industry get the opportunity to be trained up and go into different fields.”

BAFTA Scotland Director Jude MacLaverty hailed the variety within the nominations, which include short films, feature films, dramas, documentaries, comedies and also games.

“The wealth of creative talent in Scotland is demonstrated by this year’s nominations,” she said.

“We are really excited by the quality of this year’s shortlist and we look forward to welcoming everyone for another fantastic evening.”

She added: “This is obviously the big celebratory night for BAFTA Scotland, but throughout the year we do so much more training and we celebrate this throughout the year.

“It’s just this is the night that everyone gets an award and their good clothes on!”
