The line-up of presenters saw Brian Cox and Kelly Macdonald join host Edith Bowman at Glasgow’s Radisson Blu Hotel.

Alan de Pellette, acting director Bafta Scotland, said: “The quality and range in this year’s British Academy Scotland Awards reflects the sheer breadth of content being created in Scotland across film, television and games.

“The work celebrated is inspiring to all of us working in the screen industries and it’s great to see so much talent being recognised tonight. Congratulations to all of our very worthy winners.”
