The idea for the film was developed by Dr Fiona-Jane Brown, project co-ordinator at Aberdeen University’s Elphinstone Institute, who discovered the story when she was researching the history of The Grill in 2016.
Dr Brown described the award as a “massive boost” for a new film starring local actors mainly speaking in Scots.
