CLAN McGREGOR; PICTURE EXCLUSIVE: Film Hunk Ewan and Family Vote the Daily Record Film Festival a Reel Hit


Millar, John, Daily Record (Glasgow, Scotland)


Film hunk Ewan McGregor teams up with the big stars in his life - his family. The McGregor clan turned out in force as the 25- year-old actor celebrated picking up the Daily Record's Film Personality of the Year.

Cheering him on were wife Eve, dad Jim, mum Carol, brother Colin, sister- in-law Sarah and gran Phyllis Lawson.

Perthshire-born Ewan, who wore a McGregor kilt, gave the thumbs up to the first Scottish People's Film Festival.

After a charity gala dinner at Glasgow's Hilton, he said: "I'm very proud. The festival is a great idea."

The feast of films was voted a hit by stars, distributors, cinema bosses and the most important people of all - cinemagoers.

Now the signs are that the three-day event, backed by the Daily Record, will be BACK next year.

The weekend's feast of films was studded with highlights...

Fans at the Odeon's Quay Multiplex on the banks of the Clyde clapped wildly at the end of Tom Cruise's Oscar contender Jerry Maguire.

ALL the tickets for sci-fi spoof Mars Attacks! were snapped up hours before the screening at the Showcase Cinema near Coatbridge.

Scots/Nigerian newcomer,Carmen Ejogo, got a Hollywood-style welcome when she attended the premiere of Metro, in which she stars with Eddie Murphy, at the ABC in Sauchiehall Street.

Delighted kids partied at the Virgin Cinema in Glasgow's East End as they had their first experience of the Disney classic Lady And The Tramp.

This really was an event that put a smile on the cinema face of Scotland.

And it gave Scots audiences a first taste of movies that are yet to be released in this country.

Jerry Maguire, Michael - starring John Travolta as an earthy angel - Mars Attacks!, Ghosts From The Past - featuring the Oscar -nominated James Woods - The Evening Star, Blood And Wine, Metro and The Associate were just some of the all- star premiere attractions.
