HIT films Sunshine on Leith and Filth are set to go head to head for a major award.

The Proclaimers musical and the adaptation of Irvine’s Welsh’s novel about a corrupt Edinburgh detective will compete in the best British film category at the Empire Awards next month.

Filth star James McAvoy has also been shortlisted for the best actor category in the awards run by the leading film magazine. Two of the Sunshine cast – George Mackay and Freya Mavor – meanwhile have received nominations in the best newcomer categories.
