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 Award. We are delighted that this year’s Scottish Audience Award is sponsored by Film City.

Nothing is ever as it seems, particularly not in these shorts. A programme about what we easily judge on the surface, and what might be found underneath it all. 

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

Be Still My Beating Heart

Two adult sisters are existing dysfunctionally, each limited by illness - one physically and the other psychologically.

Acceptable Face

How would the 'ideal' respectable queer person look, act, and let people know that they’re not “that kind of gay”?

That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore

Can Lindsay's love for her husband Paul sustain her through the trauma of his brain injury?

Kingdom Come

An expectant father’s domestic bliss is violently shattered when his community enacts a crude form of mob-like justice based on his transgressions.

The Last Train

Tired, drunk, disgruntled, joyous and riotous strangers are pushed together on the last train home.

Neville is Dead

Neville is Magnus's best friend. Neville can't die. This is going to be AMAZING.
