CAGE-A-RAMA is to be Scotland’s first Nicolas Cage Film Festival.

Curated by Matchbox Cinebclub, the event is a two day festival celebrating the life and films of the actor, on January 6 and 7.

It will be held at the Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA) in Glasgow.

It will start with The Rock (1996) and Face/Off (1997) and Con Air (1997).

On the Sunday, Cage’s 54th birthday, the festival will present the "gentler side of Nicolas" with Valley Girl (1983), Moonstruck (1987) and Raising Arizona (1987).

Both days feature tons of "exciting Cage-related bonus features" starting from 12pm.

Programmer Sean Welsh says: “It’s high time we brought Nicolas Cage to Scotland.

"Since Cage appeared in person at the CAGED festival in Austin, Texas, earlier this year, we realised the only way to conjure the man himself was to start our own film festival in tribute."

The Hunterian Museum at the University of Glasgow is displaying a series of its recent acquisitions.

It features works by Rembrandt, Käthe Kollwitz, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Elizabeth Blackadder and Alison Watt among others.

Rembrandt’s Peasant with Hands Behind his Back is one of two etchings bequeathed to The Hunterian through the Art Fund in recent years.

New acquisitions produced in more recent times include Orchids by Elizabeth Blackadder.

Head Study by Alison Watt, another of Scotland’s leading contemporary painters.

This is the first work by the artist to enter The Hunterian collection.

Many works have been purchased with support from the Art Fund, the National Fund for Acquisitions, and the Alexander and Margaret Johnstone Fund.

The Hunterian is also indebted to a number of West of Scotland donors.

The show runs until January 21.

Pupils from a leading music school have brought the advice of a famous composer to life in a series of four short films inspired by Robert Schumann’s Advice to Young Musicians Revisited, a book by by Steven Isserlis.

The first film in the series features pupils at St Mary’s Music School in Edinburgh as they move towards mastery of their chosen instruments.

Ryan Corbett (accordion), Rachel Spence (viola), Sophie Williams (violin) and Max Carsley (oboe) describe what music means to them and how passionate they feel about their daily practising, leading up to live performance.

The six minute film also includes insights from Paul Stubbings, the school’s Director of Music and William Conway, Artistic Director.

The further three titles in the series, which will be released in 2018, are entitled Composing, Playing and On Being a Musician.

The commentary in the four films has been provided by one of St Mary’s Music School’s most famous past pupils, television personality and singer, Alexander Armstrong.

Schumann’s book, first published in 1850, received a modern focus when updated last year by Steven Isserlis, the internationally renowned British cellist and one of the Vice-Presidents of St Mary’s Music School.
