The Bill Douglas Award at Glasgow Short Film Festival showcases new international short films that reflect the qualities found in the work of Scotland’s own Bill Douglas: honesty, formal innovation, and cinematic storytelling that places sound and image centre stage.

The opening programme of the Bill Douglas Award for International Short Film raises questions of deterioration and decay, all-consuming absorption and climate crisis. In a world that is rapidly becoming less hospitable for humankind, what are the visible signs of change, whether almost imperceptible at the micro level, or glaring us in the face if we dare to look? And are there any glimpses of hope to be found?

The programme includes award winners from CinemAmbiente, Hamburg, Seoul and Oberhausen, as well as films that premiered at Locarno, Sundance and Berlin.

All films captioned for d/Deaf viewers.
