Accessibility & Certification

GSFF is committed to ensuring an open and accessible environment for everyone.

For info on our Pay What You Can sliding scale for ticket pricing, please see our ticketing page.


The films screened at GSFF are not formally certified by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC). They are marked N/C and accompanied by an age recommendation e.g. N/C 15+ (suitable for ages 15 and older; no one under 15 will be admitted).

Wheelchair Access

All venues for public events are wheelchair accessible. If you require a wheelchair space, please request this when booking by phone. BSL users who require a wheelchair space can contact GFT box office via contactSCOTLAND-BSL, the online British Sign Language interpreting video relay service. 


Captions for D/deaf and Hard-of-Hearing audiences are available for all public screenings, with the exception of Kino-Pravda and Santiago Álvarez, and for all online screenings. Captions are ON as default for each film in the online programme, and can be turned off individually.

Where possible, captions and subtitles online are provided in a form that can be read by screen readers for blind or partially sighted audiences. We regret that this isn't always possible, depending on the materials that are provided to us.

BSL Intepretation

The Scottish Competition Q&As will be BSL-interpreted. Other events and discussions may be BSL-interpreted - we will update this page and individual show listings as and when this is confirmed.

Travel Bursaries

We have limited travel bursaries available for local audiences. Please email if you would like to request this provision.
