Image for Sound & Vision

Having been introduced as Glasgow’s Film and Music Festival, sonic cinema proved so popular that Sound & Vision is now a steady season of year-round programming at GFT. 

It’s not easy to capture the energy of a live concert on film. Very few films evoke the feeling of truly being there with your musical heroes. These films do just that, providing edge of your seat musical experiences that are the nearest you will get to the real thing.
