Image for Crossing the Line

Featuring the best boundary-pushing art on the cinema screen, Glasgow Film Festival commends the city’s thriving artistic community with a series of experiences that aim to stimulate, engross and engage. We are delighted to partner once more with LUX Scotland for a series of screenings and events at Tramway, including the latest film from LA-based artist Martine Syms and an exhibition featuring the work of Margaret Salmon with a live event from Glasgow band Sacred Paws. Elsewhere, MAP magazine present their latest programme The Body in Motion // In Motion and Sarah Forrest, the recipient of the 2017 Margaret Tait Award, presents the world premiere of her new film.
