About the Guests


John McPhail began his career working in the camera department. Six years later he made his first short film, a romantic comedy called "Notes." The film picked up the Best Scottish Film award at the Bootleg film festival in Edinburgh. "Notes" has gone on to screen all over the UK and North America, picking up awards including Audience Choice, Best Film, Best Director and Best Actor and Best Editing. Later that year, he released "V for Visa" and "Doug & Steve's Big Holy Adventure." "V for Visa" went on to win the Best Director accolade at TriBeCa Film Centre in New York as part of the Bootleg Film Festival. John’s next short "Just Say Hi" was entered into to the Virgin Media Shorts Competition, winning two out of the three awards, making him the only director in the competition’s history to win multiple awards. The film was later picked up by the Très Court International Film Festival where it was screened in over 100 cities in 23 countries. John’s crowd-funded feature film Where Do We Go From Here? had its world premiere at the Sydney Indie Film Festival in Australia where it was nominated for eight awards and won Best Film, Best Score and Best Supporting Actress.
