Weekend of short filmmaking to feature at Glasgow film fest

AN insight into the art of short filmmaking has been announced as part of the Glasgow Film Festival, which is taking place this month.

Over the weekend of Friday 15th – Sunday 17th, there will be two round-table discussions covering the basics of short filmmaking (Why Make a Short? and How to Make a Short), plus a question-and-answer session with local filmmaker, Zam Salim.

The weekend will also include a retrospective of rarely-seen early shorts by now esteemed filmmakers such Wim Wenders, Chantal Akerman and Margaret Tait.

The event is being hosted by local, short film showcasers, Magic Lantern.
