80s music from the world of Pop and Films is the order of the day here at Dunoon Community Radio. During the day we hope many folk involved with the Film Festival will be visiting us here in the Argyll Street Studio above the Miller Stewart we also look forward to welcoming students from Dunoon Grammar School.

As part of the inaugural Dunoon Film Festival, pupils have organised a special DFF
Takeover which will involve a double bill screening of two iconic 80s cult movies.
Working with Festival producer Matt Lloyd and Edinburgh based cult film specialist Matt
Palmer.

The pupils from Dunoon Grammar’s S3 Administration & IT class have carried out a
range of activities to prepare for the evening.

Pupils have liaised with the cinema, negotiate with film distributors, filmed and produced a series of event adverts and designed an event logo and advertising flyer, and harnessed social media for communication purposes.

First up on the night is the fantastic, teen fantasy comedy Teen Wolf starring 80s movie
legend Michael J Fox. This is then followed by the definitive 80s cult classic– The Lost Boys,
starring 80s heart-throbs Jason Patric and Kiefer Sutherland.

In keeping with the 80s horror theme, audience members are invited to come along dressed as their favourite 80s horror character – so dig out those fangs, hockey masks and leg warmers! Prizes will be awarded on the night for the best dressed!

DGS FILM FESTIVAL

The evening promises to be a fantastic experience, with plenty of prizes and surprises
added to the rare opportunity to view two all-time great movies on the big screen.
S3 Administration & IT pupil and host for the DFF takeover Ben Doherty stated: “It’s
been tremendous fun and a privilege to take part in such a high profile event.

“Well done to everyone who has been involved in the planning and the organisation of our double bill.”
