Industry Focus, GFF Schools Week
Glasgow Short Film Festival champions new film talent by providing a meeting point for emerging Scottish and international filmmakers, industry delegates and the local audience. It is the most comprehensive annual showcase of new Scottish filmmaking, drawing industry delegates from across Europe and North America. GSFF’s international competition has drawn filmmaker guests from as far as Japan and New Zealand.
GSFF’s competitions offers two jury awards, the Bill Douglas Award for International Short Film, and the Scottish Short Film Award, alongside International and Scottish audience awards. New talent is supported through a programme of learning and networking events, including panel discussions, workshops and one-to-one sessions, delivered with national and international partners. GSFF curates unique retrospective programmes, and hosts parties and live performances.
GYFF is one of the most innovative youth film festivals in Europe. Programmed by young people, who are mentored on a year round basis, it presents an outstanding range of international films and creative workshops for young people across the city. The schools programme that precedes GYFF presents a wide selection of films accompanied by resources/introductions to enhance the film screening.
