It is now one of the hottest, most eagerly anticipated, fixtures on calendars and the recent 2017 Glasgow Film Festival (GFF) programme launch proves there is plenty to look forward to.

The thirteenth annual film festival kicks off on February 15th and will see Ben Wheatley once again feature in the programme. This year Wheatley returns with Free Fire, a 1970s based shootout flick starring Brie Larson and Armie Hammer, and will host a special Q&A (as already reported).

The Opening and Closing Gala will feature Handsome Devil and the world premiere of Mad to be Normal starring David Tennant who is set to attend the festival.

As always with GFF, there will be a variety on offer from world cinema and beyond including Paul Verhoeven’s Golden Globe winner, Elle, and Shin Godzilla (Shin Gojira) directed by Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi.

The Lost Boys
The Lost Boys will play at this year’s Glasgow Film Festival – Go Frog Brothers!

There will also be a special screening of The Lost Boys and those lucky enough to get tickets to the sold-out event will be in for a treat, if last year’s Con Air is anything to go by.

In addition, Òran Mór will host a special screening of Dirty Dancing as part of the festival which will include a dance workshop from award winning ballroom dancers Tibro Poc and Hilary Mouat.
