Glasgow Youth Film Festival

Running at the Glasgow Film Theatre and other venues across the city from Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th September, the festival is programmed by local young programmers aged between 15 to 19. The group take part in a two week summer school where they work closely with the team behind the GFT and Glasgow Film Festival to learn how to put together an exciting and thought-provoking film festival for their peers. Previous guests at the festival have included Hollywood star John C. Reilly and the cast of Channel 4 smash hit Fresh Meat.

Moving to a regular new slot in September, the 2017 Glasgow Youth Film Festival will open with the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2017 Audience Award winner Just Charlie, Rebekah Fortune’s thought-provoking debut feature about a transgender child’s journey for acceptance. The festival will close with a pop-up screening of Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom at Mackintosh Queens Cross.

Tickets to all GYFF screenings are £5.50 for 15-25 Card holders.

Anyone aged between 15 and 25 can register for a free 15-25 Card at GFT box office or online at
