The Golden Video Awards is an annual short film screening, celebrating the work of new members of Edinburgh Movie Production Society, and will take place on the evening of Saturday 28th January in Teviot Row House, just off Bristo Square in Edinburgh.

Prizes will be awarded for the likes of best film and actor, as voted for by the audience and the EMPS committee at the screening.

The event will be starting at 7:30pm in the Terrace Bar (follow the signs), although the screening of the films won't start until about 8ish, but do arrive early to get good seats and grab a drink or two before it gets busy!

Tickets cost 3 pounds and are available on the door. Dress is smart (black tie optional).

Me and my friends from EMPS have made a short movie ourselves, called 'Culture Shock', in which I play the lead character 'John', a banker.

Synopsis of our short film, 'Culture Shock':

An International renowned Banker, called John, is on his way through Edinburgh to attend a conference in London. He is already running late and then it so happens that the train has been cancelled. For once, John has to rely on 'other' people to make it to his destination. A destination he would never have imagined that day in Edinburgh.

Look at "Favorite Movies" in the left hand column of this blog to see a preview of the EMPS movies. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
