Image for Local Heroes

Glasgow Film Festival is a renowned showcase for the very best films from our local filmmakers. These are the people who have followed their dream, put their visions on the line and dazzled us with the possibilities that exist in our own backyard. They are the inspirational figures who bring a fresh eye to familiar aspects of the world around us, tell the nation’s stories, give a voice to the invisible and confidently stride out onto the world stage. Among the homegrown heroes this year we extend a warm welcome back to director Robbie Fraser with his documentary Final Ascent, a poignant account of the life of mountaineer Hamish MacInnes. Hogmanay in Glasgow is the start of a beautiful romance in Only You, while the chilling depths of the North Sea are the location for real-life jeopardy in Last Breath. Ashley Joiner’s Are You Proud? follows the historical quest for gay rights in the UK, as well as the battles still to be fought. Join us in supporting the films that strike close to home.
