About Us

Welcome to Glasgow Film's showcase of opportunities, screenings and events and activities for children, young people and teachers across Glasgow.

Our vision for Glasgow Film is an inclusive, collaborative space where audiences and communities can nurture their passion for cinema and be empowered through taking part in our programmes.

To do this we work collaboratively with young people, teachers, our fellow film education organisations and funders to provide a fun and relevant programme for ages 5-25.

Glasgow Film is proud to be the lead organisation for the Glasgow Film Education Alliance, a collaborative film education initiative with Glasgow Film, Into Film, Glasgow City Council Better Futures and Glasgow Improvement Challenge, supported by Screen Scotland.

Our aim is to provide children, young people and teachers with the tools, resources and opportunities to get involved in Glasgow’s film culture.

And for those looking for even more our Behind the Scenes programme of industry events and masterclasses is supported by BFI Film Academy and delivered in partnership with Eden Court.

For those under 15 we have our regular programme of free weekly Take 2 family programmes, every Saturday morning, as well as Take 2 Access a relaxed screening for neurodiverse families taking place once a month. Please note: Take 2 screenings restart on 4 September. Information on when Take 2 Access screenings will restart will be shared as soon as possible.

And finally we have our regular Film Fans for 11-14 year olds, a five week programme learning all about film and what goes into making them!
