Contemporary drama Summer was the toast of the annual BAFTA Scotland Awards on Sunday evening, securing Best Film and Best Director for Kenny Glenaan.

The choices were widely anticipated in a year that had provided the awards with few strong contenders. Star Robert Carlyle was also nominated for the acting prize which went to veteran Brian Cox for his performance in The Escapist. Vertigo will release Summer in the UK on December 5.

Ken Stott was a surprise winner for television acting performance for his impersonation of comedian Tony Hancock in Hancock And Joan.

Special awards acknowledging a lifetime contribution to Scottish cinema paid tribute to cinematographer Mark Littlewood and veteran director Mike Alexander whose lengthy career includes such television features as Dreaming (1991) and As An Eilean (1993) and episodes of television stalwarts like Taggart and River City.
