Last year, a film called Boyz In The Wood scored lots of acclaim at film festivals such as Edinburgh. Now, freshly re-titled Get Duked! the trailer is online for more general viewing.

Ninian Doff's film follows Dean (Rian Gordon), Duncan (Lewis Gribben) and DJ Beatroot (Viraj Juneja) are teenage pals from Glasgow who embark on the character-building camping trip loosely based on the Duke of Edinburgh Award, where foraging, teamwork and orienteering are the order of the day. Eager to cut loose and smoke weed in the Scottish Highlands, the trio finds themselves paired with straight-laced Ian (Samuel Bottomley), a fellow camper determined to play by the rules. After veering off-path into remote farmland that’s worlds away from their urban comfort zone, the boys find themselves hunted down by a shadowy force hell-bent on extinguishing their futures.
