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 final competition selection turns to visions and constructions of imagined futures and remembered pasts. Where do satellites go to die? An afronaut crashes to earth, emerging from the wreckage of his spaceship in the volcanic crater of Mount Nyiragongo. The Brazilian military attempt to find an imaginary island off the coast of Ireland, and a digital artist collaborates with a Somali-born furniture-maker on a recreation of the past he has put behind him.

The programme includes award winners from Locarno, Clermont-Ferrand, Uppsala, and the latest film by Bill Douglas Award winner Douwe Dijkstra (Green Screen Gringo, GSFF17).

All films captioned for d/Deaf viewers.
