Glasgow seems to appear more than ever on the big screen, whether playing itself in the likes of Neds and The Angels’ Share, or slapping on some grease paint and tarting up as Philadelphia or San Francisco in World War Z and Cloud Atlas. But the most unexpected, authentic and comic portraits of the city are often found in short films made by emerging local talent. Glasgow Short Film Festival has rounded up a motley crew of recent favourites – some we have already screened at the Festival, others are showing publicly for the first time. From no-frills guerrilla efforts to big budget glossy productions, each of these live-action fiction films captures something unique to Glasgow.
We expect to welcome several of the filmmakers to the screening to introduce their work and answer questions.
