EVENTS: It’s Just About Movies At Tullibole Castle

RSCN1874This weekend saw the unveiling of JAM (Just About Movies) film festival at Tullibole Castle, near Kinross, a prototype event that the organisers hoped to test on one hundred volunteers sourced via their official Facebook page.

Split over two screens (one of which was situated in the nearby woods), the festival screened eight movies over Saturday night and Sunday morning — a line-up which included films as diverse as The Cabin In The Woods, The Breakfast Club and Good Vibrations, the latter of which was presented by Glasgow Film Festival. The surprise movie, meanwhile, was revealed by critic Paul Greenwood to be 1992 Academy Award-winner My Cousin Vinny.
With camping encouraged, the organisers — Joe Bailey, Mo Bailey and Jo Hood — also laid on food and drinks, a small band to play between screenings and a film quiz in the largest screen. Furthermore, Tullibole residents the Moncreiff family also encouraged guests to explore the castle grounds, which also house a moat, a witches’ maze and the remains of a 9th Century medieval church.
A huge success which drew incredibly positive feedback, plans are now afoot to extend the festival over three days for its official launch next year, complete with more films, larger screens and a considerable increase in capacity. The aim is to create a music festival for film lovers, in a region which already hosts large-scale events such as T In The Park.
