If it’s February in Glasgow it can only be the Glasgow Film Festival, the perfect place for the more discerning film fans to take shelter from the storm while enjoying the best cinema has to offer, old and new.
Running from 21st February – 4th March, it’s a festival which over the years has firmly established itself as one of the very best around.
Scots Whay Hae! will be bringing you interviews as well as the usual reviews, but before we do here is our annual preview.
2018’s programme has so much to recommend it we couldn’t possibly do anything other than make some considered suggestions here, but you can and should download the full brochure, settle back, and peruse at your leisure.
However, before you do here’s a taste of what’s on offer:
As ever, there are various categories and strands to guide you towards whatever may be your cup of tea. This year they include Behind The Scenes, Rebel Heroes, Ireland: The Near Shore, Cinemasters, Local Heroes, Sound & Vision, Modern Families, Stranger Than Fiction, Future Cult, Poineer, Window On The World, Crossing The Line, Pure Baltic and the always popular FrightFest.
Add to those some very special events at appropriate venues, a surprise film, school discos, a wide-selection of Gala events, the Glasgow Short Film Festival, the Glasgow Youth Film Festival, and many Special Guest appearances and interviews.
To whet appetites even further, here are the trailers for 12 films to look forward to. They include some of the best Scottish features at this year’s festival, as well as a few other highlights.
