Press & Industry

Our Industry Programme is at the heart of the festival, creating a bustling hub of activity during the festival dates and continuing all year round. This is where we forge connections, share fresh new thinking and nurture the filmmakers of tomorrow. 


GFF 2021 Industry Focus

Thank you for joining us for our online edition of GFF this year, and our Industry Focus programme which ran 1 - 6 March. We are glad we could provide you with a jam-packed, fully digital programme of industry speakers, topical panel discussions and professional development opportunities that would rival any of our in-person editions!

If you attended, we would appreciate it if you filled in our Feedback Survey. Your thoughts are very important to our continuing development of the programme, making each year better than the last.

GFF will return 2 - 13 March 2022. Stay tuned for updates on our Industry Focus dates.


We won't be leaving you empty-handed until next year, however. In this challenging time for the film sector, we understand that opportunities to network, develop skills and connect filmmakers with new opportunities are more vital than ever.

Our continuing year-round programme of free digital events, specially curated for emerging filmmakers, allows you to connect with industry experts and peers from your own home. The programme has two strands:

Industry Connects

Running throughout the year, our Industry Connects programme provides a series of digital opportunities for both emerging and established filmmakers in the form of webinars, live streamed discussions and curated digital content. 

Short Circuit

Short Circuit is a talent development initiative for new and emerging filmmakers in Scotland, funded by Screen Scotland and BFI NETWORK and delivered by Film City Futures and Glasgow Film. Short Circuit's digital events programme is aimed at supporting new and emerging filmmakers. Free webinars with leading film talent will cover everything from scriptwriting for beginners to deciding on your film festival strategy, alongside monthly networking events and film screenings.
