A SHORT film set in a Glasgow supermarket has been selected for this year’s Venice Film Festival.

The Shift is the second movie written and directed by Edinburgh film-maker Laura Carreira, a 2019 Bafta Scotland nominee with her previous production Red Hill.

The 10-day Venice event, which begins on September 2, is the only major European film festival physically still going ahead this year.

Carreira said: “We’re so happy with the news, especially after what has been such a difficult year for our industry.

“The theme of the film has unfortunately become more relevant in the last few months.”
