'Glasgow is a fantastically diverse city to film in. Our experience from filming both The Wife and Churchill in Glasgow was excellent, and the support from Jennifer and the Glasgow Film Office was extremely helpful, and echoed the welcome that the city gave us.'

Piers Tempest, Producer, The Wife and Churchill

"The cooperation we had from the Glasgow Film Office and indeed from across the city council made it all possible, and the people of Glasgow were incredibly welcoming. It's been a very successful shoot here."
