GSFF23 faves: Find Your Way

23 March

A quick guide into this year's programme you ask? We present a selection of shorts from across the GSFF23 strands and focuses, offering you a little teaser to figure out what to see next. Will you lean more towards A.I.-antics or want to explore our Lebanese focus? Hopefully you'll dig all of it and be sent into an excellent festival week. And just like you, characters in these films are trying to find their way, but maybe with a bit more at stake than a festival programme... 

All films captioned for d/Deaf viewers.
