As an Oscar-winning actress, Tilda Swinton is certainly used to the glamourous side of film festivals. Now the British star has created her own, in her hometown of Nairn in north-east Scotland, and saw its opening on Friday.
This is a film festival with a twist, though. Celebrities are not invited and entry is free to those who bring fairy cakes. Audiences at the specially converted Ballerina Ballroom Cinema of Dreams – the seaside resort's former town hall - sit on beanbags and can tuck into sandwiches as they watch the flicks.
Running until August 23, the festival will show a variety of films, including Singin' In The Rain, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Murder Most Foul.
"One of my dearest hopes is that people see the possibility for a Cinema of Dreams in every part of the country," says the Michael Clayton star.
