Glasgow Short Film Festival 2023

Glasgow Short Film Festival is back for its sixteenth edition!

Scotland's leading short film event returns with an invigorating programme of international shorts, homegrown talent and live performances. Watch the latest films across competitions, genres and countries from the most exciting filmmakers on the shorts circuit.

Highlights include a focus on contemporary Lebanese short films with a rare live performance from Beirut-based gender-defying queer dancer Khansa, a retrospective of award-winning artist duo Bárbara Wagner and Benjamin de Burca, wild world-building animations and cinematic existentialism through innovative A.I. collaborations.

Expect comedy, drama, horror and family fun, with local talent stealing the spotlight in Scottish Competitions and the Young Scottish Filmmaker Prize screenings.

Once again, the prestigious Bill Douglas Award is up for grabs with filmmakers arriving from around the world to present their work. Audiences will have their say too - as the GSFF Scottish and International Audience Awards are back, shiny and ready for the next fan favourite!

All GFT screenings are listed below, with links to book tickets via the GSFF ticketing platform. Please note that tickets can only be booked via GSFF, and not through GFT's box office.
