Image for Behind the Scenes

Always on hand to assist those curious about the inner workings of the film industry, Glasgow Film Festival’s Behind the Scenes strand returns for another year, partnering with NFTS Scotland to present a fantastic selection of panel talks, discussions and masterclasses. Whether you’re an industry veteran or merely a curious film devotee, you’re bound to find something to pique your interests. BAFTA Scotland will present a masterclass with the foley artist behind Paddington, Peter Burgis, and Creative Media Scotland will host an illuminating hour with prosthetics artist Stuart Bray. NFTS Scotland will bring their own curated talks on production and locations, and superstar composer Matt Dunkley will be dissecting his portfolio in Anatomy of a Soundtrack. An inspiring and informative selection, and best of all, the talks are totally free!
