The event was attended by all those involved in creating the short film including Fife filmmaker David Penman, co-writer and director Gary A Wales and actors Lara Fullerton, Paul Lapsley and Rosie Steel.

The film brings to life the story of a seemingly normal family man on a date night with his partner, when things turn nasty after he takes a mix of drugs and booze.

Speaking after Monday night’s event, David Penman, co-writer and director, said: “It was great to finally see our work on the big screen and to meet so many new people too.

“I would like to thank everyone who attended the screening, we now move onto the next one.”
