This year’s Glasgow Film Festival will see no less than six world premieres in what is a packed programme.

The 17th annual festival is now completely online given the global pandemic and kicks off on February 24th with Lee Isaac Chung’s Minari. Closing the festival on March 7th is Suzanne Lindon’s debut feature, Spring Blossom.

World premieres include Eye of the Storm as well as Poly Styrene: I am A Cliché. Kevin Macdonald’s The Mauritanian will be among 49 films set for its UK premiere alongside Black Bear and Riders of Justice starring Mads Mikkelsen to name but a few.  

Scottish highlights will see the return of Ewen Bremner as part of Nick Moran’s Creation Stories, penned by Irvin Welsh and Dean Cavanagh.

As with tradition, the programme’s Country Focus this year is South Korea. The strand will see the UK premiere of Jung-eun Lim’s Our Midnight with other titles including Da Capo and The Man Standing Next – South Korea’s 2021 Oscar pick.

Tickets for the Glasgow Film Festival will go on sale at 12 noon on January 18th and more information can be found here
