Team Bodkin returned to Forres at the weekend to screen Bodkin Ras exclusively to the cast and crew. Kaweh, Sohrab and Katie travelled up to Forres to be reunited with the local cast. Red James and Eddie Paton – two Forres residents who feature in the film – got the chance to see themselves and their friends on screen.
It was an emotional occasion, with one audience member saying that it had allowed him to finally say a proper goodbye to his grandad who appeared in the film. Eddie Paton marked it as the best day of his life, and we donated the red carpet to him as a memento.
It really was an incredible experience for us to share the finished film with its Forres cast. Thank you to everyone who came along. Also special thanks to Forres Town Hall for the venue, to Film Forres for the equipment, and to Oh How Sweet for providing the popcorn!
