Wow I just realised it’s a leap year this year, well what a great way to spend that extra day (Feb 29th)? Spend it in the company of a musical trio…
So what are they about?
“Do you miss nylons and swing? Do you feel even nostalgia just isn’t what it used to be? Wish you could still smoke in planes? The Hummingbirds are here to help! Join this fresh new collective as they take you up, up and away into the sunny skies of yesteryear. With songs spanning the boogie woogie era to 90s girl power, this is a whimsical, comical and musical look at love at 40,000 feet, with your charming hostesses, the Hummingbirds. Come fly with us!”

Documentary The Last Dogs Of Winter
, which features Caleb Ross
, will be showing in Glasgow, as part of the Glasgow Film Festival
The film will be shown at 3:30PM on Thursday 23rd February at the Glasgow Film Theatre. Tickets are £8. To book tickets, click here.
Brian Ladoon is the kind of wilderness man who seems tailor-made for a Werner Herzog film. In 1976, Ladoon began a lifelong mission to protect and preserve the beautiful Canadian Eskimo dog qimmiq which is the rarest registered breed of dog in the world. The dogs once numbered in their thousands but had been reduced to hundreds by the late 1970s. The Last Dogs of Winter tells Ladoon’s story and that of Caleb Ross, a young New Zealand actor who travelled to Churchill, Manitoba in search of adventure and stayed three years. An inspirational documentary with awe-inspiring footage of the landscapes, the dogs and the polar bears who share their territory. This film will screen with beautiful animated short Amaqqut Nunaat (The Country of Wolves, 11min), winner of the prestigious Best Short Drama and Best Emerging Artist awards at the ImagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival 2011. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: The Edge of the World.
