Back to festival

The 12th and a half edition of Glasgow Short Film Festival - our first as an independent organisation - is not how we imagined it. This newly curated live-streamed opening programme reflects our experiences of the last few months, of lockdown and isolation, and of ways of coping with it. 

Opening with a glimpse behind the scenes of Hannah Currie's GSFF 2020 trailer, the programme features the UK premiere of In the Company of Insects, the latest film by one of our favourite filmmakers Duncan Cowles, alongside a romp through the club scene of Kinshasa, a heartfelt tribute to the people of Beirut and finally a cosmic voyage. Expect tears, laughter and maybe a little dancing - anything might happen in this live-streamed gala event!
