Submissions for Glasgow Film Festival 2019 are now closed.

Glasgow Film Festival (GFF) is committed to supporting emerging talent and providing audiences with the opportunity to see the best of world cinema. GFF's strands include the best of new Scottish and British features, art/experimental film and video, gaming, music, documentaries and an annual country focus. 2019’s country of focus will be announced in the coming months.

GFF is a major date in the festival calendar, with many UK distributors and exhibitors attending who could bring your film to the UK market. Perfectly placed in February as a launch pad for spring and summer releases, GFF provides a high profile platform for film professionals, introducing some of the best new films to the UK's discerning audiences, film industry and press. Films selected through the submission process have played to enthusiastic crowds at Glasgow over the years and gone on to secure wider distribution.

Seven submitted films were screened at GFF18: Haiku on a Plum TreeMan Proposes, God DisposesWhich Way UpFind This Dumb Little #Bitch and Throw Her into a RiverBlue My MindYou, Me and Him and Closing Gala, Nae Pasaran.

GFF19 will take place between 20 February – 3 March 2019.

We wondered if an audience would brave a snowstorm to see a film. The Glasgow Film Festival audience did that three times for Nae Pasaran. Such a warm welcome and constant support from the directors and staff throughout the festival made it a fantastic experience.

It was such an amazing feeling to see the Scottish audience supporting the film so wholeheartedly… My gratitude for that support is hard to express in words. Glasgow Film Festival will be etched in my memory forever.
