The Scottish competition at GSFF honours inspiration and innovation in new Scottish cinema, and is judged by an international jury of filmmakers and curators. Viewers have the opportunity to choose their favourite to win the Audience Awards. We are delighted that this year’s Scottish Audience Award is sponsored by Film City. 

This programme delves into personal and shared myths, histories and environments, exploring how they haunt and connect us.

The programme will be followed by a Q&A with the directors.
