Time to nominate a Shetland pub to star in a film is drawing to a close.

Director Jim Brown is producing "Between Weathers" and wants to find a bar he hopes to make as famous as Local Hero's Pennan Inn.

The Pennan Inn in Aberdeenshire - and the village's red phone box - became recognised after Bill Forsyth's classic 1983 film starring Burt Lancaster.

Suggestions can be sent to locations@betweenweathers.com until the end of Friday.

Entrants can also e-mail in photos of their suggested bars.

"Between Weathers" is described as a modern-day David and Goliath story.

More information on the movie - in which locals have already been cast - is available on its website.
