What exactly is a short film? A film that is short? A short story filmed? A sketch, an experiment, a doodle, a noodle? Join us for a whistle-stop tour through some of the highlights of this year’s programme, showcasing a wide range of cinematic visions and offering an introduction to GSFF’s ever-shifting interpretation of what short film is and does. With drinks courtesy of our friends at Auchentoshan and Merchant City Brewing.
