The Cineskinny 2013
Back for its fifth GFF, The CineSkinny is on hand to offer some guidance. Published each day of the Festival by The Skinny’s crack team of cinephiles, it’s your one stop shop for festival information. They’ll be recommending the cinematic gems hidden within the vast Festival programme and the must-attend events happening all across the city. There’ll be daily features and they'll be tracking down the filmmakers and actors attending the Festival to get the inside scoop on the films they’ve brought to Glasgow. They’ll also be reviewing and previewing the best movies GFF has to offer.
You’ll find the daily editions for free throughout the Festival at Festival venues and other locations across the city. You can also browse The CineSkinny online at Issuu (click on the individual links below) and read individual articles on www.theskinny.co.uk.
