A brand-new feature film shot in York will be shown in the city next month.

Scott And Sid is tipped to be the best coming-of-age movie since Billy Elliot.

It enjoys its world premiere in London the day before its Yorkshire premiere at the Everyman Cinema on Blossom Street on March 7.

Based on a true story, Scott And Sid is about two awkward teenagers who meet at school.

Scott (played by Richard Mason) is an unloved foster child who’s been expelled from multiple schools. Sid (Tom Blyth) is the withdrawn, awkward son of an alcoholic mother and absent father.

In defiance of the low expectations that everyone has for them, Scott and Sid write a list of goals and begin pursuing each one in turn to create a better life.



Classroom scenes were shot in Huntington School

The brainchild of real life best friends Sid Sadowskyj and Scott Elliott, who grew up in Bradford, they had always been keen on shooting the movie here.

“It came clear pretty early on that we wanted to film in York, Ultimately the film is an advert for York as a location.

I think a lot of people were very excited and very interested about a feature film coming to Yorkshire.”


Behind the scenes at the Biltmore


Many locations, old and new, feature in the movie. All the classroom scenes were shot at Huntington School.

Pivotal moments are located on the city walls.

The Biltmore Bar and Grill on Swinegate hosts scenes set on a night out – and features many extras brought straight into the movie from the streets of York.

And the grandeur of the Assembly Rooms and the Aviva office also feature.
