Scottish Competition 4: Navigations

26 March

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

The fourth programme in this year's competition presents protagonists adrift, on journeys to nowhere, going round in circles or unable to move forward. Others have finally found their place or made a revelation that might unlock their stasis.

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.
