Select event time

Here are a list of days and times at which this event will take place March


  • A Autism friendly
  • C Captioned
  • D Dementia friendly


Now we are ten! Let’s span time together, indulging ourselves with nine films handpicked from each previous edition of GSFF. No obvious choices – none of our award winners will be included and we’ll steer clear of anything too serious… for the most part at least. We’ll show you what we think constitutes the perfect GSFF film – honest, questioning, fresh and inventive, making a virtue of limited means and above all fun. Join us for great movies, maybe a glass of something and a fistful of cake.
