Bill Douglas Award for International Short Film

The Bill Douglas Award at Glasgow Short Film Festival showcases new international short films that reflect the qualities found in the work of Scotland’s own Bill Douglas: honesty, formal innovation, and cinematic storytelling that places sound and image centre stage.

Six loosely thematic programmes of international work, comprising fiction, documentary, animation and experimental/artists’ moving image, compete for the Bill Douglas Award for International Short Film and the International Audience Award.

The GSFF24 Bill Douglas Award went to Saleh Kashefi for And How Miserable is the Home of Evil.

The jury consisted of Céline Roustan, programmer and film critic for SXSW and Short of the Week; Jonathan Ali, programming director at Third Horizon Film Festival and programme consultant for Locarno Open Doors, Alchemy Film & Arts, and others; and Randa Maroufi, the subject of the GSFF24 filmmaker focus.

The GSFF24 International Audience Award went to Wander to Wonder by Nina Gantz.
