About Glasgow Film Festival

Across 12 days Glasgow will host 9 World premieres, 10 European premieres, 102 UK premieres and 39 Scottish premieres!

Star guests including George Mackay, Caitlin Moran, Simon Bird, Cannes Best Actress Award Winner Emily Beecham, Celia Imrie, Bill Paterson and the cast of hotly-anticipated Scots comedy Our Ladies will grace the red carpet at the city’s 16th annual celebration of cinema.

World premieres of Sulphur & White and Flint and UK premieres of The True History of the Kelly Gang, The Truth, Lost Transmissions, Radioactive and the epic 14-hour Women Make Film: A New Road Movie Through Cinema.

Festival closes on International Women’s Day with every film screened that day either directed or written by a woman or featuring a female lead.

The full programme has been announced for Glasgow Film Festival 2020. From 26 February to 8 March, one of the UK’s largest film festivals will host over 380 film screenings, talks and special events - including 9 World premieres, 10 European premieres, 102 UK premieres and 39 Scottish premieres.

Tickets go on sale from 12 noon on Thursday 30 January for GFF members and GFT CineCard holders, and on general sale from 12 noon on Monday 3 February.

The festival will open and close with UK premieres of films directed by women - Alice Winocour’s Proxima starring Eva Green as an astronaut preparing for a mission to the International Space Station and Beanie Feldstein’s star turn in the big screen adaptation of Caitlin Moran’s blockbusting memoir How to Build a Girl, directed by Coky Giedroyc. Glasgow Film Festival closes on International Women’s Day with a celebratory showcase of female talent - with every film screened either directed or written by a woman or starring a female lead.

Glasgow Film Festival (GFF) is one of the leading film festivals in the UK and run by Glasgow Film, a charity which also runs Glasgow Film Theatre (GFT). GFF is made possible by support from Screen Scotland, the BFI (award funds from the National Lottery), Glasgow Life and EventScotland, part of VisitScotland’s Events Directorate.
