Glasgow Short Film Festival 2020 – POSTPONED

Please note – due to Coronavirus, this programme is now postponed. 

All updates on rescheduling can be found on the website here.

Glasgow Short Film Festival, the largest competitive short film festival in Scotland, champions new film talent by providing an annual showcase and meeting point for new and established Scottish and international filmmakers, industry delegates and the local audience. The programme celebrates diverse forms of cinematic expression, whether fiction, documentary, animation or artists’ moving image, and foregrounds disruptive, ground-breaking work that transgresses the boundaries of conventional narrative film.

GSFF is a friendly and inclusive festival in which the work of emerging Scottish filmmakers is presented in the context of an international programme. We believe that international collaboration is vital for Scottish filmmakers. GSFF not only advocates the importance of short film in progressing future generations of filmmakers, but provides the meeting-place where collaboration can begin.

GSFF’s core programme comprises international and Scottish competitions. New talent is supported through a programme of learning and networking events, including panel discussions, workshops and one-to-one sessions. GSFF curates unique special programmes on particular movements or filmmakers of international importance, and hosts parties and live performances throughout the festival week.
