Programme Updates

With so many new releases and live events, the festival programme is subject to last minute additions, guest announcements and sadly, cancellations. This is where you can keep up-to-date with changes that won't be noted in the printed brochure. Our apologies for any disappointment or inconvenience caused as a result of these changes.


We have 20 waiting list places (max 2 tickets per person) available for each sold out show, for use in the event of returned tickets.

If you would like to be added to a waiting list, please email with the following details:

  • The name of the film/event in the subject line of the email
  • The date and time of the performance
  • The number of tickets you would like – maximum 2
  • Your name and contact telephone number

If you wish to be added to waiting lists for multiple shows, please send an individual email for each show. Please send only one email per waiting list that you wish to be added to.

You will be notified by email if you have been added to the show’s waiting list, or if the list is already full. If tickets become available for any sold out shows, waiting list members will be contacted in order of email receipt.

No correspondence will be entered into. Glasgow Film Management’s decision in all instances is final. All tickets once issued are non-refundable and non-returnable. Please note: waiting list does not apply to Opening or Closing Galas.
