Glasgow film fest invites submissions

SCOTTISH filmmakers are being invited to submit their work for possible screening at the next Glasgow Film Festival.

Next year’s event – the fifth Glasgow film festival – takes place in Feburary, and a deadline of October has been set for submissions from filmmakers.

Say the organisers: “The festival has now started the submission process for [next year] and welcomes features, shorts and work in all genres. [It] is committed to supporting Scottish talent and providing audiences with the opportunity to see the best of world cinema.”

Adds festival co-director, Allan Hunter: “Last year was the first time we opened the festival to submissions and we were very pleasantly surprised by the quantity and also the quality of the films that were offered to us.

“The festival team is eagerly looking forward to viewing and discussing the films that are submitted this year. Every film is given a fair chance. The features and shorts shown last year testify to the integrity of the process and the genuine opportunities open to filmmakers who want to submit their films to Glasgow.”

The deadline is October 31.
