First screening success!

Posted: May 13, 2019 in Uncategorized

On Wednesday 1st May we had our first outing for Riptide! Although with a temp soundtrack, the film screened to a private invited audience of psychiatrists, psychologists and medical students at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, site of the final day’s shooting. We’re indebted to the support of medical workers during this project, so it was vital to hear their thoughts.


The response was wonderful and the film looked terrific on a big screen. A post-screening Q & A generated much discussion surrounding portrayals of psychiatric disorders, and the issues of myths and stigma. There was much praise for an authentic, positive story of schizophrenia, and excitement about a wide audience seeing this film.

We fully intend to tour this film to hospitals, as well as patient groups and support services, and this was a great initial step towards that. Now we have to finish it and get screening!
