Preluding the Glasgow Film Festival, the 2014 Glasgow Short Film Festival kicks off this Thursday night with an impressive selection of films and events happening over the weekend up until Sunday night.
We have two Scottish Documentary Institute films playing in this year’s Scottish Competition:
Jane McAllister’s The Registrars (Bridging the Gap+ 2013) is showing on Thursday the 13th at 19.15 in the CCA. Also, Felipe Bustos Sierra’s Nae Pasaran (Bridging the Gap 2013) on Sunday the 16th at 16.15 in the same venue.
There are also lots of notable films from Edinburgh College of Art & Screen Academy graduates.
From Edinburgh College of Art we have Duncan Cowles’ short doc Radio Silence playing Saturday the 15th at 19.15 in the CCA, a personal film that shows Duncan trying to find out why he finds it difficult to speak to his father. Then there’s fellow graduate Ilona Kacieja’s Red Dust showing Sunday 16th at 16.15 that looks at the effect of a pollution-causing steel factory in Ravenscraig on the community of North Lanarkshire.
Some other films; documentary, fiction and animation playing over the weekend worth looking at are: The Port (Rory Stewart), Stay the Same (Sam Firth), Orbit Ever After (Jamie Stone), Loma (Katri A Vanhatalo), Seams and Embers (Claire Lamond), Spectators (Ross Hogg), Hart’s Desire (Gavin Robinson) and many more.
