BAFTA Scotland Nomination for Knox Film

Thursday March 31

A documentary film about the life and legacy of great Scottish reformer John Knox is up for an award in the 2016 BAFTA Scotland New Talent Awards.

The film, simply called Knox, is nominated in the Best Factual category at next month's awards.

Its director, Murdo Macleod, said it was 'a great delight' to receive the nomination.

Trinity Digital, the production company behind the film, was set up in 2015 by Murdo, a freelance producer from the Isle of Skye. The £29,000 film was predominantly funded through crowdsourcing and has been broadcast around the world since its premiere in August last year.

It is presented by Philip Todd, like Murdo a graduate in Digital Film and TV from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

As well as the BAFTA nomination, Knox is also nominated in several categories at the International Christian Film Festival, to be held in Orlando, Florida in April.

Murdo says: "It is a great delight for me to see this film nominated for these awards. This film has been a huge undertaking, not just for me but for all the cast, crew and contributors who have given their time to make it possible. It is brilliant to see all that hard labour rewarded and recognised.

"John Knox was an outspoken Christian, and it is natural that his life and legacy will be of interest to Christians around the world. But beyond that, he was also a Scotsman. He cared passionately for his native country and it is a joy for me to see that his story continues to interest and engage the people of Scotland today, regardless of their faith or religious beliefs."

You can find more information on the film, buy or rent as a download or streaming video, or buy DVDs via the Trinity Digital website.
