A contemporary horror movie filmed in Aberdeen will premiere at the Belmont Filmhouse at the end of June.
Manifest, which was filmed across the city in locations such as Hazlehead Park and the harbour earlier this year, will enjoy an hour-long premiere at the Belmont Street cinema after months of work.
"We are absolutely delighted with the finished film," said director and co-producer Darren Campbell.
"It’s really pulled together over the past two weeks. It showcases the very best of Aberdeen in terms of both filming crew and acting talent."
Written by Chris Watt, the film was inspired by a bar fight witnessed by the author, who was struck by the crowds who did nothing to help and instead filmed the incident on their phones.
Stylistically similar to Charlie Brooker’s successful modern dystopian series Black Mirror, the film follows a photographer who specialises in capturing the darker aspects of life in the Granite City.
His voyeuristic lifestyle soon catches up with him as the contemporary horror story unfolds, when he is forced to see his worst nightmare come to life – frame by frame.

The crew, who launched a fundraising campaign in March to raise money for expert cameras and equipment hire, were delighted with support the film received from donations which helped to elevate the look of the finished product.
Darren said: "The crowdfunding scheme went well. We raised around £1000 which we put towards the cost of hiring equipment which really helped to up the quality of the finished product."
Now members of the public will be given a chance to get a sneak peak of the 20 minute film as tickets have been made available for the premiere ahead of its official release on July 1 when it will be available to download.
The hour long event will see Manifest unveiled to friends and family of the crew, as well as music videos showcasing the score composed by Ali Campbell specifically for the film.
The crew will also allow cinemagoers a sneak peak into the process of making a short film at the event.
And those who helped the film get off the ground through the fundraiser will also be recognised, with invitations to the event.
Darren added: "Those who helped to fund the film through the campaign will also be invited along to the premiere as well as being given a digital download of the film."
Manifest premieres at The Belmont Filmhouse on June 30 and tickets are available to purchase alongside copies of the film from the Manifest website.
