The GSFF Scottish Short Film Award honours inspiration and innovation in new Scottish cinema. Many of the filmmakers will be in attendance to take part in short Q&As after each screening. Thanks once again to the generous support of independent production company Blazing Griffin, the award carries a cash prize of £1,500. You will have the chance to vote for your favourite to win the Audience Award, the winner of which will be invited to create the GSFF 2020 trailer. 

The final programme in the competition explores roots, notions of family and belonging, and the memories and emotions we attach to objects.
