THREE Scottish filmmakers have been honoured at a special awards ceremony for films that deal with mental health issues.

The Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival unveiled its international film awards at an event in Edinburgh last night.

Twelve winners in total were picked from 150 entries.

The winning films cover a wide range of issues, from the mental wellbeing of people living with Down's syndrome and autism, to the mental strain caused by post-partum psychosis, dementia, abuse and war.

Among the Scottish winners is Sitar Rose, who tackled childhood sexual abuse, in her film Tell Tale Signs, which was highly commended in the Arts and Mental Health Category.

IIona Kacieja's film Red Dust was Highly Commended in the Short Documentary category, and looks at the mental effects of the pollution caused by the now closed Ravensgraig Steelworks.

Claire Lamond's stop-motion animation Sea Front is set in Kirkcaldy during the First World War and tells of the mental damage caused to a local soldier and his family.

The winning films will be screened until October 19 at the Glasgow School of Art.
