Comedy drama from award-winning comedian Josie Long about a young woman trying to build a new, more fulfilling life for herself in Glasgow â€“ the Indie Band Theme Park, where Josie will finally be happy and accepted. But itâ€™s harder than she thought to make friends and even just to go swimming.
Our two shorts (Romance & Adventure is the second one (Josie gets a pal) vimeo.com/77275071) have been made into a Radio 4 series bbc.co.uk/programmes/b074zw4l
Letâ€™s Go Swimming was made shortly after Josie met director Douglas King at an arts festival in Newcastle. Josie came up to Glasgow for a week and they wrote the script â€“ Josie Long Glasgow Film as it was known then â€“ in the childrenâ€™s section of the Mitchell Library. A month after, they were on a 5 day shoot with an amazingly talented cast and crew.
Nominated for 2 BAFTA New Talent Awards, theyâ€™ve been on a 25 date UK cinema tour too, which was seen by over 1,700 people.
