An affectionate homage to the days when Granton had its own picture palace; The Embassy, on Boswall Parkway. The film:hub presented a screening of shorts shot mostly in the Granton area by students from Screen Education Edinburgh who discussed their work in a question and answer session afterwards. The event featured a well-attended and popular workshop teaching young adults the basics of professional video camera operation; and top of the bill – a special screening of Wes Anderson’s ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’.
