A chiller filmed on a budget of £4,000 is to be given its premiere at the Inverness Film Festival in November.
Shot in Assynt, Buckie and Edinburgh, Graders' cast includes actress Janet de Vigne who appeared in the Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire.
Director David Hutchison said his script was partly influenced by the murders of Lithuanian Jolanta Bledaite and Angelika Kluk, from Poland.
Both the women were murdered in Scotland.
Graders' premiere will be at Eden Court in Inverness on 10 November.
The film tells of a woman's search for her sister who has gone missing while working in a fish factory in the remote Scottish Highlands.
It features a song by Gaelic Mod gold medallist singer Eilidh MacKenzie, who was brought up on Lewis, in the Western Isles.
Last month, de Vigne attended a special screening of Slumdog Millionaire in Kingussie.
The Highland village's Ruthven Road is mentioned in a line in the film delivered by the actress, from Edinburgh.
De Vigne's appearance at the screening marked the launch of new weekly film nights in Kingussie.
