Image for Stranger Than Fiction

Welcome to the real world. Box office success and critical acclaim mean that the documentary has never been in better health. The widespread love for GFF18 Closing Gala and subsequent BAFTA Scotland award-winner Nae Pasaran is a shining example of the emotional impact and power of true stories told with passion and conviction. Stranger Than Fiction highlights the best documentaries from around the world with films that speak truth to power, smash through the idiocies of the fake news agenda, and take us right to the heart of real lives and authentic stories. This year’s crop includes Netizens, in which a group of women dedicate themselves to fighting the online harassment of women and Do No Harm, which reveals the Scottish connection to the development of global torture techniques.
