Scottish Competition 3: From Earth

25 March

The Scottish Short Film Award at GSFF, the largest annual showcase of its kind, honours inspiration and innovation in new Scottish cinema.

Our third Scottish competition programme starts off like a trip and ends in contemplation, but in all films we find characters' strong links to earth. Let yourself be bewildered by peculiar woodland creatures or survivalist swines, or ruminate on our body's and spirit's connections to nature and landscape. 

The Scottish Audience Award is sponsored by Film City Glasgow. Audiences will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite to win the Audience Award.

All films captioned for d/Deaf viewers. There will be a BSL-interpreted Q&A with the filmmakers after the screening.
