Into Film Club Screening: School of Rock (PG)
Sat 22nd Jan: 3pm, An Talla
How does a slacker get his head round the financial necessity of a job? That’s the dilemma facing unemployed rock guitarist Dewey Finn in this vibrant and uplifting comedy. Deciding to masquerade as a supply teacher at an exclusive private school, he proceeds to educate the privileged pupils on the joys of rock. But the kids have such musical talent that Dewey is convinced they can help him return to the spotlight. So instead of regular lessons, the youngsters form a group – which Dewey then secretly enters in a prestigious ‘Battle of the Bands’.

Two years after his wife’s unexpected death, Yusuke Kafuku (Hidetoshi Nishijima), a renowned stage actor and director, receives an offer to direct a production of Uncle Vanya at a theatre festival in Hiroshima. There, he meets Misaki Watari (Toko Miura), a taciturn young woman assigned by the festival to chauffeur him in his beloved red Saab 900.
As the production’s premiere approaches, tensions mount amongst the cast and crew, not least between Yusuke and Koji Takatsuki, a handsome TV star who shares an unwelcome connection to Yusuke’s late wife. Forced to confront painful truths raised from his past, Yusuke begins, with the help of his driver, to face the haunting mysteries his wife left behind.
Adapted from Haruki Murakami’s short story, Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s Drive My Car is a haunting road movie travelling a path of love, loss, acceptance, and peace. Winner of the Best Screenplay Award and the FIPRESCI Prize at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival.

Tiree 10k and Half Marathon
Saturday 30th April 2022
The Tiree 10k & Half Marathon is an annual event on the Hebridean island of Tiree. Known for its perfect beaches, clean air, sunshine, crystal clear waters and relaxed pace of life – Tiree is a fantastic place to run. We welcome all abilities whether you walk, jog, run, or race for a podium spot. Tiree is about enjoying the outdoors, the challenge of the race, encouraging each other, and embracing the stunning Hebridean environment you’re about to run through.
The Tiree 10k & Half Marathon started in 2006 and has grown to be a much anticipated event on the island calendar. Visiting runners are welcome along with local residents and we’ve had people travel from as far as Slovakia and Brazil just to do the race. The atmosphere is friendly and continues into the night with the legendary dance at An Talla. There’s a prize giving with prizes for top overall results, age groups, teams and some spot prizes.
Tiree Music Festival
8th – 10th July 2022
Tiree Music Festival is more than a music festival. It is a true island adventure to one of the most stunning festival locations in the world.
Think picture-perfect white sands. World-famous surf. Deserted roads lined with lush greenery and wild flowers. Not forgetting more sunshine than practically anywhere else in the UK. It’s little wonder that the tiny Hebridean island of Tiree is nicknamed the ‘Hawaii of the North’.
This is the unique location of Tiree Music Festival, or TMF as it is known by many who have been part of the incredible journey of this small event….
For years, Tiree local and musician with the band Skerryvore Daniel Gillespie found himself performing at festivals around the world thinking how great it would be to have a similar event back home. Until one day, he and fellow Tiree local Stewart MacLennan decided to create exactly that.
Their early vision was one of a music festival capable of sharing the magic and beauty of Tiree with visitors from far and wide, and in doing so delivering a welcome boost to the economy and community of this remote island.
That was back in 2010 and resulted in a 600-capacity sell-out pilot event. In the years since, thanks in no small part to an army of volunteers and a loyal following, TMF has produced consecutive sell-outs since, growing in capacity each year until 2016 where the event reached the target max capacity of 2000 – a number that will not increase so that TMF can remain what makes it so special. Small and intimate.
Since its formation TMF has also gone on to win 10 national awards including Best Small Event at the Scottish Event Awards (2012, 2013 & 2016), Best Cultural Event at both the Highland & Island Tourism Awards (2013 & 2015) & Scottish Thistle Awards (2013). Event of the Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards (2013) and also then its first UK award by being crowned the Best Small Event at the UK Event Awards in 2014. Evidence, if ever it was needed, that small can indeed be beautiful.
So whether you’re joining us from the mainland, are island hopping from somewhere nearby or are local to Tiree, we look forward to welcoming you to TMF and the ‘Hawaii of the North’.
