Iain Smith

Iain Smith comes from Glasgow and graduated from the London Film School

in 1971. He worked in London for several years before returning to Scotland

to make My Childhood, the first of the award winning trilogy by the late Bill

Douglas. ¶He has since gone on to produce, line produce or executive

produce some of the greatest British films: Chariots Of Fire, Local Hero, The

Killing Fields, The Mission. His recent work includes Cold Mountain, Children

of Men, The A Team. He has brought his latest film to the Festival—Mad Max:

Fury Road, accompanied by head of visual effects Andrew Jackson. ¶Iain’s

bluff, avuncular style, his humour and knowledge, are perfectly suited to the

Cromarty Film Festival.
