Dozens of young screen talents are in the running for the Bafta Scotland awards for up and coming film makers.

Thirty six nominations have been selected across 12 categories.

The winners will be unveiled at an awards ceremony on 14 April and will be hosted by author, broadcaster and journalist, Muriel Gray.

The winners from each category will go on to compete for the Best New Work award.
