Code of Conduct for Digital Spaces

At Glasgow Film, we strive to make our digital platforms safe spaces for everyone. Everyone has the right to feel safe and welcome when they engage with us online, and we are committed to creating an environment of equality for all, in both our digital and physical spaces.

This Code of Conduct provides a set of guidelines we expect everyone to adhere to when interacting with any of our social media accounts or digital activities. Anyone who does not adhere to this Code of Conduct may be blocked or subject to expulsion from events/activities, without warning and without receiving a refund for any paid activities.

How to Report Harassment

We do our best to remain vigilant across all of our social media platforms but we are a small team and our accounts are not monitored 24/7. If you experience or witness any form of harassment on one of our digital platforms, please contact a member of Glasgow Film staff providing detailed information. All complaints will be investigated and appropriate action taken. We will treat your complaint confidentially.
