Now heading into its 20th year the Glasgow Film Festival releases details on its special events and a retrospective programme.
GFF24 special events will see the return of Victor Fleming’s classic, The Wizard of Oz, and Female Trouble which celebrates its 50th anniversary.
In recent years special events have included screenings of The Blair Witch Project in a forest as well as Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark in Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.
The retrospective programme will show titles from each anniversary of Glasgow Film’s (GFT) history. These free screenings each morning will include Young Frankenstein, Wuthering Heights and The Godfather Part II to name but a few.
It is also confirmed that Czech cinema will be the County Focus where the festival will screen a number of premieres including crime thriller Mr and Mrs Stodola, dystopian sci-fi Restore Point and the UK premiere of Jarmila Štuková’s Is There Any Place For Me, Please?
This much anticipated fixture on the festival calendar never disappoints and CEO of Glasgow Film & Director of GFF, Allison Gardner, said: “I am overjoyed to select titles for the 20th edition of the festival alongside a group of programmers with such vibrant and innovative ideas. Each programmer has been able to make their unique stamp on the upcoming festival through our popular Special Events, famous Retrospectives and rich Czech titles.’ ”
The Glasgow Film Festival runs from February 28th to March 10th. Special events tickets go on sale on December 13 at 1pm on the GFT site here
