welcome

In Sunset Boulevard, Gloria Swanson’s fallen idol famously declares: ‘I AM big. It’s the pictures that got small.’ Norma Desmond was more prescient than she could ever have imagined. Pictures are so small these days you can watch them on your phone, download them to your laptop or tuck a three-hour Peter Jackson epic in your coat pocket. The way we consume films has changed beyond all recognition. However, the sheer thrill of sitting in a cinema and watching a film together is something that will never wither or grow stale. There is a reason that cinemas are called dream palaces. There is that expectant buzz of a full house. The silent hush when the lights are dimmed. The explosion of emotions when something makes us laugh or cry, question our deepest values, see the world in an entirely different way or just allows us to escape from everyday cares to a world of fantasy, romance, happy endings or stark terror. Glasgow Film Festival is a vast celebration of all that going to the cinema can be whether that cinema is a place of comfort and familiarity or a secret space where no one has dared to watch films before. We have a programme filled with irresistible delights that range from the first chance to catch some of the must-see movies of 2013 to a rare opportunity to watch all-time classics restored to their rightful place. We celebrate Great Scots and new voices in Brazilian cinema, perfectly co-ordinated matches of fashion and film, music and movies, venues and unique events. We honour Hollywood legend James Cagney and seek out the best new American independent films, present award-winning productions from some of Europe’s finest directors and span the world for documentaries that prove the old adage that fact is stranger than fiction.

There is a cool new Festival club where everyone is welcome, a screening to mark the Year of Natural Scotland, this year’s Margaret Tait Award winner, a brand new strand devoted to the joys of gaming with Robert Florence, and a wealth of must-see screenings from Glasgow Youth Film Festival and Glasgow Short Film Festival, both rightly recognised as among the best events of their kind in the UK. And, of course, there are some real shockers from those incorrigible FrightFest boys. We truly think there is something for everyone. Welcome to the 9th Glasgow Film Festival. Come and join us for the bigger picture.

BUENA ONDA: NEW BRAZILIAN CINEMA City of God, Elite Squad and Central Station have alerted audiences to the world-class cinema emerging from Brazil.

FRIGHTFEST Films that will make your flesh creep, your stomach heave and your eyes roll heavenwards. Gore, grand guignol, giggles and groans. Pure cinema. Pure terror. From the team that knows what is good for you. And now the screaming starts...

GALA Roll out the red carpet, slip on the dark shades and book the stretch limo for the first glimpses of the finest films heading your way throughout 2013. Big names. Big budgets. Surprisingly small ticket prices. Glasgow: cinema-going with style.

GAME CATS GO MIAOW! Curated by obsessive gamer Robert Florence of BBC Scotland’s Burnistoun and videoGaiden, our newest strand celebrates Scotland’s passion for gaming. As computer games grow ever more cinematic in their scope and sweep, could they begin to challenge the movie-going experience? Some famous faces and hardcore gamers stop by to investigate.

JAMES CAGNEY: TOP OF THE WORLD, MA! Long before Goodfellas, Scarface or The Godfather, James Cagney was Hollywood’s ultimate tough guy. An electrifying performer, Cagney blazed across the screen in a series of landmark crime classics including The Public Enemy, The Roaring Twenties and White Heat. Cagney was equally adept at helter skelter screwball comedy and wartime drama and this retrospective pays tribute to the remarkable versatility of one of the greatest stars from Hollywood’s Golden Age.

KAPOW!@GFF Savour Glasgow’s very own dark nights with superhero classics old and new, unmissable discussions and debates, and premieres from the world of graphic novels and beyond.

THE STATE OF INDEPENDENTS Welcome to the world of American cinema that lies beyond the razzle dazzle of what Hollywood has to offer. Intensely personal visions, incredibly compelling stories and quirky, funny, cutting-edge, state-ofthe-art joy from hot new talents.

An exceptional selection of the best examples of the genre that will take you on amazing journeys, reveal incredible lives and challenge your views on pressing matters of crime and punishment, life and death.

opening gala

closing gala

If you are in the mood for love this Valentine’s Day then look no further than our opening gala Populaire, a sparkling romantic comedy that matches Gallic savoir faire with vintage Hollywood style. The retro look of Mad Men and the glossy allure of a Doris Day/Rock Hudson tussle are among the influences on this beautifully crafted first feature from Régis Roinsard, the director of dazzling music videos and awardwinning short films.

When you have just made the biggest and best superhero blockbuster ever – Avengers Assemble – what do you do for an encore? Create another impossibly cool television series? Dash off a ridiculously smart script? Take a lie down in a dark room? In the case of Joss Whedon, he gathered together a group of acting friends at his Santa Monica home and over the next twelve days shot an inspired, inventive modern day version of one of Shakespeare’s most beloved plays in gorgeous black and white. It works a treat.

Populaire

In 1958 every girl’s dream is to become a secretary to a successful businessman and tour the world in the shadow of his greatness. At least, that is what we are asked to believe. Rose (Déborah François) might be a bit of a disaster as a secretary but she can type with the speed of a runaway train. Insurance agent Louis (Romain Duris) can see her as a future champion in the fiercely contested speed typing competitions sweeping the country. Naturally, she needs to move into his old rambling family house so he can transform her, Henry Higginsstyle, into a winner. It is all strictly business especially as Louis has a bad track record with commitment. Just ask his childhood sweetheart Marie, played by Bérénice Bejo from The Artist. Packed with period colour, Populaire is sheer delight and the fantastic soundtrack is the icing on a very special cake. UK premiere. Tickets for the screenings on Thursday 14 February cost £10 and include entry to the Opening Gala party (ages 18+ only). Gala GFT Thursday 14 February (19.30 & 20.15) Friday 15 February (13.00) Director Régis Roinsard Cast Romain Duris, Déborah François, Bérénice Bejo France 2012, 1h51m, French with subtitles, N/C 12+ Thanks to Momentum Pictures

Much Ado About Nothing

Claudio (Fran Kanz) and Benedick (Alexis Denisof) have just returned home after a successful campaign abroad. Claudio is besotted by the lovely Hero (Jillian Morgese) and can only hear wedding bells and dream of happy ever afters. The cynical Benedick scoffs from the sidelines falling back into his ‘merry war’ of insults with his age old sparring partner Beatrice (Amy Acker). Underneath all that bantering and bickering aren’t they really made for each other? The pursuit of happiness is strewn with unexpected obstacles while love and loathing are only separated by a heartbeat in this breezy, warmly witty and supremely accessible Shakespeare adaptation. A triumphant labour of love from one of the most creative and versatile talents in American film. UK premiere. Tickets for the screening cost £10 and include entry to the Closing Gala party (ages 18+ only). Gala GFT Sunday 24 February (20.15) Director Joss Whedon Cast Amy Acker, Nathan Fillion, Alexis Denisof USA 2012, 1h49m, N/C 8+ Thanks to Kaleidoscope Entertainment

Buena Onda: New Brazilian Cinema

All eyes are on Brazil as the country prepares to host the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games. There is so much more to the country than the familiar clichés of football and favelas, samba, carnival and Copacabana beach. The sixth largest economy in the world has a rich cultural history that ranges from the writings of Jorge Amado and Clarice Lispector to the compositions of Heitor Villa-Lobos and the seductive bossa nova sound of Antonio Carlos Jobim. The glories of Brazilian cinema stretch from silent masterpiece Limite to the radical militancy of Glauber Rocha and the Cinema Novo movement and recent global hits like Central Station and City of God. Buena Onda offers a unique opportunity to watch some of the best new Brazilian films, many of them being screened in the UK for the very first time. The strand celebrates a generation of filmmakers confronting the ghosts of the past in Cao Hamburger’s epic Xingu, addressing the concerns of the present in Kleber Mendonça Filho’s acclaimed Neighbouring Sounds/O som ao redor, and daring to challenge convention in Eduardo Nunes magnificent black-andwhite fable Southwest/Sudoeste, a film that reflects the creation of a thrilling, distinctive new cinematic language. This is a rare showcase of contemporary Brazilian cinema celebrating exciting new voices, award-winning achievements and box-office crowd-pleasers. The Best Things in the World

James Cagney: Top of the World, Ma!

James Cagney is one of the greatest stars that American cinema has ever produced. He blazed across the screen in a series of landmark crime stories torn from the bleak headlines of Prohibition-era America. Born in 1899, he was raised in the tough neighbourhoods of New York’s lower East Side and started his career in vaudeville and Broadway musicals. It was his electrifying performance in The Public Enemy (1931) that made him a star and sealed his reputation as the ultimate Hollywood tough guy. Cagney invested his lawless renegades with a raw power and the swaggering insolence of the streets. He was eager and energetic, moving on the balls of his feet, fists twitching, ready for any fight that was brewing. He was invincible, approaching the world with a defiant snarl and an impish grin. Critic Kenneth Tynan once observed that ‘he possessed, possibly in greater abundance than any other name star of the time, irresistible charm.’ Cagney’s acting philosophy was deceptively simple: ‘Learn your lines, find your mark, look ‘em in the eye and tell ‘em the truth.’ The results were unforgettable performances that range from his beloved, Oscarwinning portrayal of George M Cohan in Yankee Doodle Dandy to his psychotic hoodlum in White Heat and a comic tour de force in Billy Wilder’s One, Two, Three. Join us for rare screenings of some all-time Cagney classics. Angels with Dirty Faces

Great Scots

Self-effacement is one of the more endearing and infuriating traits of our fair nation. We traditionally retreat from the limelight, shrug off a word of praise or dodge a heartfelt compliment. Not at Glasgow Film Festival. We aim to praise Scottish filmmakers, and Greats Scots is a platform that celebrates the very best new productions and allows some overlooked gems to step forward and take a bow. The many highlights this year include a chance to hear James Cosmo discuss his distinguished, award-winning film career, documentaries on Alasdair Gray and Scottish Ballet founder Peter Darrell, plus We Are Northern Lights, a kaleidoscopic attempt to find the essence of Scotland.

A-Z LISTINGS

30 Days of Night As the sleepy town of Barrow, Alaska is plunged into its annual ‘30 Days of Night’ – a month-long period of perpetual darkness – the town’s folk find themselves besieged by a gang of ruthless, hungry vampires. With no communication to the outside world and facing almost certain death, the dwindling population (led by Josh Hartnett and Melissa George’s husband-and-wife Sheriff team) must band together to survive. Directed by Hard Candy’s David Slade and based on Steve Niles’ terrifying comic, this tense horror offers a startlingly visceral take on the vampire genre.

Kapow!@GFF CCA Tuesday 19 February (21.45) Director David Slade Cast Josh Hartnett, Melissa George, Danny Huston USA/New Zealand 2007, 1h48m, 18 Thanks to Filmbank

All tickets cost £5 Steve Niles will take part in an ‘in conversation’ event on Tuesday 19 February (20.30). See p56 for details.

50 Years of Doctor Who It is fifty years since the BBC launched Doctor Who in November 1963 and it remains an essential part of family viewing. We celebrate the anniversary with BAFTA-nominated Doctor Who screenwriter Tom MacRae. Tom is the creator of Comedy Central hit Threesome, an award-winning children’s author and creator of the Doctor Who stage spectacular The Crash of the Elysium. His Doctor Who television credits include the two-part Rise of the Cybermen, The Age of Steel and The Girl Who Waited. Tom has selected a favourite Doctor Who episode to screen and we hope to also welcome a cast member to this special event.

80 Million 80 milionów

Poland’s candidate for the 2013 Oscars is a complex, rousing heist thriller inspired by true events and carrying echoes of Argo and The Lives of Others. It is 1981 and martial law is about to be declared. Five Solidarity activists are tipped off and secretly move to safeguard a fighting fund by withdrawing 80 million zloty from various trade union accounts in the Solidarity stronghold of Wroclaw in northern Poland. The daring plan to steal their own money unfolds in a climate of fear and paranoia where government surveillance is constant and the stakes are impossibly high. An urgent, entertaining yarn that grips from start to finish.

The ABCs of Death A is for Ambitious, B for Brilliant, C for Courageous: twenty-six letters, twenty-six directors, twenty-six ways to die in a lightning-paced anthology showcasing death in all its vicious wonder and brutal beauty. The idea is simple; a range of international genre filmmakers were given a letter of the alphabet, $5,000 and total freedom to create a short film about dying. From sex-fuelled murder and claymation toilet humour to artful giallo orgasm and sobering drug orgies, the twisted visions are funny, bad taste and confrontational. All provide bloody, provocative and shocking fun on a carnival ride to the other side. UK premiere.

About Face: Supermodels Then and Now The original supermodels, including legendary names like Isabella Rossellini and Jerry Hall, reflect on their years in the spotlight in this honest documentary about the process of ageing. With their careers wholly dependent upon their continuing beauty and with the added pressure to age gracefully, many turn to alternative means in order to prolong their involvement in the business. As Carmen Dell’Orefice, still modelling at the age of eighty-one after sixty-five years in the business, says ‘If you had the ceiling falling down in your living room, would you not go and have a repair?’.

Adrift: International Competition 4 Lost your bearings? Coming unstuck? Our fourth international selection features characters struggling to find a foothold in a changing world. A phone call transforms a young woman’s life in Echo, whilst a location scouting trip falls into disarray in the international premiere of Indian epic Vanishing Point. A houseful of Argentinian children and a collector of lightbulbs also feature, whilst I Am Tom Moody has won awards at Encounters Film Festival, Bristol, Krok in Russia and Ottawa Animation Festival. Full details of all the films are provided in the Glasgow Short Film Festival brochure.

After Lucia

Después de Lucía After Lucia is a one of those films that really gets under your skin. It might not seem like it at first but as the plot develops and the tension builds, you will be holding your breath and tensing your fists. After the death of her mother, Alejandra and her father Roberto start a new life in Mexico City. Both are coming to terms with their grief but Alejandra is bright and seems to fit into her new school with ease. Then, she makes one big mistake and is subject to the most merciless, unjust bullying by her classmates. She feels there is nobody she can turn to and the situation spirals out of control during a school trip. A brilliant, gripping tale that confirms director Michel Franco as a bright new talent.

After May Après mai

The events of May 1968 are a defining moment in 20th century French identity. Olivier Assayas’ semi-autobiographical drama is a love letter to the legacy and possibilities of the period. Set in 1971, it follows teenager Gilles as he tries to balance political idealism, artistic ambition and a hunger for love. He finds a soulmate in fellow idealist Christine. When unrest returns to the streets of Paris, they spend an endless summer at an Italian villa in a giddy atmosphere of intellectual curiosity, chaotic parties and romantic longing. An impeccable evocation of the music and moods of the 1970s lends added allure to one of Assayas’ most personal projects.

Aftershock Producer, co-writer, star and genre guru Eli Roth becomes the new Master of Disaster. Three tourists and their three Chilean guides head to Valparaiso for the last days of their South American holiday. But as they dance the night away in a crowded nightclub, a massive earthquake hits the area causing widespread death, destruction and urban anarchy. Who will survive in this dark, intense and unpredictable mix of disaster flick and horror thriller? This film grips with the excitement of a classic Irwin Allen 1970s epic and delivers the bloodiest of shocks as buildings collapse along with society. UK premiere.

Alasdair Gray – A Life in Progress (working title) Kevin Cameron’s feature-length portrait of Alasdair Gray is as entertaining and multifaceted as the man himself. It offers a colourful mosaic of fresh interviews, vintage archive footage and opportunities to view Gray at work as he creates massive murals and sculpts tightly formed essays. It even allows Gray to assume the role of a dapper, smooth-cheeked, smart-suited inquisitor to interview himself. Who better? What emerges is affectionate and playful with a good deal of attention focused on the long road to Lanark, as well as perceptive comments from Gray’s sister Mora Rolley and Liz Lochhead on how Gray changed how Glasgow thinks of itself. This is an irresistible world premiere of a work in progress.

Aliens: The Live Review (& Aliens in 70mm) Robert Florence invites a panel of gaming experts including journalist Kieron Gillen and Tom Bramwell, Editor of Eurogamer, to review the brand new video game Aliens: Colonial Marines live in front of an audience, before a screening of James Cameron’s Aliens in glorious 70mm. Expect fury, fire, fights and then a film! Seven-time Oscar nominated blockbuster Aliens is the fast-paced sci-fi sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1979 shocker Alien. Sigourney Weaver returns as Ellen Ripley who, after drifting aimlessly in space for half a century, is kick-started into action after a ferocious alien queen threatens the life of Newt, a young girl who is the sole survivor of a colonial settlement destroyed by the aliens.

The American Scream From Michael Stephenson, director of Best Worst Movie, comes another charming and hugely entertaining documentary. Meet the Brodeur, Souza and Bariteau families who live in the seaside town of Fairhaven, Massachusetts. Every year they spend fortunes turning their homes into stunning haunted houses for the Halloween holiday, determined to dazzle and impress their neighbours through their imaginative use of simple yet clever scare tactics. Watch them as they plan, slave, obsess and suffer trying to outdo each other in the fearful fun-ride department. An engaging, inspiring, heart-warming examination of creativity, community and love of Halloween horror. UK premiere.

Angels with Dirty Faces The quintessential Warner Brothers thriller with James Cagney and Pat O’Brien as boyhood chums. Cagney turns to crime, rising from small-time hoodlum to notorious neighbourhood gangster, idolised by a generation of young punks. O’Brien becomes a priest, convinced that a better man still lurks within the heart of his former childhood pal. A breathless mixture of hardboiled urban thriller and the kind of visceral morality tale that packs a considerable punch. Cagney received a Best Actor Oscar nomination and was never more charismatic. The classic ending has lost none of its raw power.

Anything For You: Scottish Competition 2 Six of the twenty-four films competing for the Scottish Short Film Award. This programme features the world premieres of Shaun Hughes’ Spain-set shocker Cariño and Louis Paxton’s creepy comedy Dollface. Duncan Cowles (The Lady and the Lamp) returns to GSFF with a meditation on memory, Soft Toffee, and two Glasgow-set dramas explore themes of addiction and escape, Zack Copping’s Foxy & Marina and Russell Davidson’s Meal Deal. Karoliina Pulkkinen’s short and sweet Meet-Cute completes the programme. Full programme details are provided in the Glasgow Short Film Festival brochure.

Arbitrage Richard Gere gives a stunning, career-best performance in Nicholas Jarecki’s Arbitrage, earning him a Best Actor nomination at the 2013 Golden Globes. New York hedge-fund magnate Robert Miller (Gere) appears the very portrait of success in business and family life. However, behind the gilded walls of his mansion, Miller is in over his head both personally and professionally, desperately trying to conceal an affair from his loyal wife (Susan Sarandon). When a tragic accident complicates things further, attracting the unwanted attention of tenacious NYPD detective Michael Bryer (Tim Roth), Miller finds himself battling not just for his reputation but also his life.

The Artist and the Model El artista y la modelo

Oscar-winning director Fernando Trueba has collaborated with legendary screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière for an exquisitely crafted reflection on life, death and art shot in sumptuous black and white. Jean Rochefort is perfectly cast as Marc Cros, an elderly sculptor living in a small market town in the occupied France of 1943. It is his wife and former model who spots Mercè, a fugitive from Franco’s Spain living rough in the town. She believes the girl can inspire her husband to resume his art and the film is a delicately handled account of the bond that develops between the artist and his model, a subject whose youth and beauty become a symbol of hope in the darkest of times.

Auricle Ensemble: The City The twenty-piece Auricle Ensemble performs live alongside a showing of seminal documentary The City. Produced for New York’s 1939 World Fair, The City was written by Lewis Mumford who was greatly inspired by Scot, Sir Patrick Geddes. Aaron Copland’s accompanying score has been described as ‘an astonishing missing link not only in the genesis of Copland’s Americana style but in American music and cinema’ (LA Times). Actor Crawford Logan narrates live alongside twenty musicians directed by Chris Swaffer. The evening concert also features premieres of Copland’s ‘Quiet City’ (original version), ‘Sprawl’ by Steve Forman and an introductory talk.

Banaz – A Love Story

In association with

In 2006 Banaz Mahmod, a young Kurdish woman living in London, was murdered by members of her own family in an honour killing. This is a heartbreaking document of the story around her violent marriage, hopeful love affair and the fear she suffered in the months leading up to her gruesome death. We hear from Banaz’s sister who bravely testified against her own family, and of the tireless efforts of Detective Chief Inspector Caroline Goode, who led the hunt for the killers.

The Bay Trust Oscar-winning director Barry Levinson to embrace the found-footage genre and give us its scariest spin EVER! The sea is the livelihood of a small coastal town in Chesapeake Bay. When an extremely high level of toxicity is found in the water, the mayor refuses to halt the Independence Day celebrations to avoid spreading panic. Too late: a plague of flesh-melting, tongue-chewing, stomach-eating parasites is about to contaminate the population with devastating blood-vomiting consequences. Gross, disturbing, creepy and chilling, yet punctuated by a dark sense of humour, The Bay is true issue-raising nightmare horror. UK premiere.

Bernie Indie king Richard Linklater’s latest is a charmingly off-the-wall combination of mockumentary and the blackest of comedies, based on a remarkable true story. Linklater reunites with his School of Rock star Jack Black, who is perfectly cast as the eponymous funeral director at the centre of a scandal when murder comes to his small Texas town. Locals tell Bernie’s story with wit and warmth to spare, while Matthew McConaughey continues his recent career resurgence, and he and Black are joined by Hollywood legend Shirley MacLaine as the battleaxe widow with whom Bernie begins an unlikely friendship.

Beware of Mr Baker You’ll find no hagiography here in a raucous documentary account of the life and times of former Cream drummer Ginger Baker, rather a warts-and-all portrayal of a musician who some call the world’s greatest drummer, and just as many call a certifiable madman. With extensive footage of Baker in action in his prime, and contributions from Cream co-founders Jack Bruce and Eric Clapton, plus many more legends of rock, this is a music lover’s dream, but it’s the eccentric Baker himself who provides the most captivating, if bonkers, footage.

Beyond the Hills Dupa dealuri

The latest epic work from Cristian Mungiu (4 months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days) takes its inspiration from true events. Voichita has found peace at an Orthodox monastery in the remote Moldavian wilderness. Her friend Alina arrives for a visit, determined to rescue her friend from this pious, repressive community. Although Alina’s mildly disruptive presence is initially tolerated by the head of the order, she is soon viewed as an evil influence who has fallen under the spell of the devil and must be saved. Eschewing cheap sensationalism or Exorcist-style thrills, Mungiu constructs a masterful drama that chills to the bone.

Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me It is hard to imagine a world without Big Star, the seminal power pop act whose intense guitar-driven pop songs influenced generations of musicians, from REM and The Flaming Lips to Primal Scream and Teenage Fanclub. Despite never receiving the commercial attention they deserved in their initial 1970s incarnation, Big Star’s music proved so vital that it granted the band a resurgence decades later. Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me charts the origins of rock’s most enduring cult phenomenon, combining never-before-seen footage, exclusive interviews and a musical tribute to the Memphis musicians. Chosen by Monorail Film Club.

The Black Pirate Appearing without the benefit of CGI or 3D, swashbuckling silent screen star Douglas Fairbanks Sr created some of the most spectacular stunt sequences in movie history. An athletic, devil-may-care spirit, he found one of his best roles in The Black Pirate, a rip-roaring tale of adventure on the high seas. Determined to avenge the death of his father at the hands of scurvy-ridden pirates, incognito nobleman Fairbanks secretly joins their numbers. Along the way there is action aplenty with sword fights, death-defying escapes and the chance to rescue a beautiful princess. All in a day’s work for Doug. An early Technicolor gem for thrill-seekers of all ages.

Join horror icon Boris Karloff as he hosts and stars in a trilogy of terror from the golden era of Italian shockers: a beautiful woman is terrorised by her psycho ex-lover, a family becomes a feeding ground when their wounded father returns from vampire hunting, and a thieving nurse is haunted by the spirit of a dead medium. Screening for the first time in English and in stunningly pristine condition, you’ll be absolutely amazed by how scary this film still is. Retrospective premiere.

Blancanieves Pablo Berger’s dazzling Blancanieves relocates the classic tale of Snow White to 1920s Spain. Carmen is the daughter of a famous matador grief-stricken by the death of his wife. She is raised by her flamenco-loving grandmother and a tyrannical stepmother. Her father trains her in the art of bullfighting, a skill that stands her in good stead when she flees for her life and takes sanctuary with a travelling troupe of bullfighting dwarves. Shot in sumptuous black and white and dispensing with dialogue, this is a wonderfully atmospheric, deeply romantic melodrama told to a magical musical rhythm.

Blood Brian Cox, Paul Bettany, Mark Strong and Stephen Graham provide the acting muscle in this mean, melancholy thriller based on the television series Conviction. Joe (Bettany) and Chrissie (Graham) are brothers and fellow detectives raised on their father’s suffocating memories of days when the force didn’t need to worry about due process and liberal qualms. The brothers are investigating the murder of a twelve-year-old girl. When the suspected killer looks like he’s going to walk free, they are determined to take control of the situation. Crossing the line tips the film into a compelling morality tale where actions have tragic consequences and guilt tears people apart.

This event relates to Hang on a Minute (Jo Davis and Lis Rhodes, 1983–1985), thirteen one-minute films reflecting on the traditional patterns of oppression in women’s lives and the many forms that resistance takes. Commissioned by Channel 4, they were intended to be broadcast unexpectedly between programmes. A selection of these films will be screened throughout Glasgow Short Film Festival prior to screenings.

Bottled Up: International Competition 2 Repressed desires and restricted freedom are explored in our second international selection. In two brilliant North African films, Moroccan The Curse and Algerian Softly One Saturday Morning, two women rail against the hypocritical values of a disapproving society, whilst in Under the Colours an Iranian soldier’s attempts at an act of kindness are constricted by his uniform. Canadian found footage film This Charming Couple repurposes a 1950s educational film, and American experimental narrative The Buried dissects a true-life hate crime. Full details of all the films are provided in the Glasgow Short Film Festival brochure.

Breakfast with Curtis Think early Wes Anderson or Miranda July as a way of getting a fix on writer/director Laura Colella and her wry, quirky tale loosely inspired by her own friends and neighbours. Syd is the neighbourhood eccentric; a wine-sipping, ping pong playing bookseller who presides over the Purple Citadel, a bohemian household of free spirits. Curtis is his neighbour’s morose, bespectacled fourteen-year-old son who is extremely bright but socially anxious. Five years after an altercation permanently severed relations between the Citadel’s housemates and the family next door, Syd invites Curtis to help record his freewheeling video blogs. It is the beginning of a summer that fosters a whole new sense of peace, love and understanding.

Breaking the Frame This is a delicately composed, beautifully textured portrait of groundbreaking artist and kick-ass feminist Carolee Schneemann. The New York-based artist is a pioneer of performance art and avant-garde cinema, whose work has transformed discourses on the body, sexuality and gender since the 1960s. Deftly weaving footage from some of Schneemann’s seminal works including performances Meat Joy and Interior Scroll, as well as Fuses, her honestly explicit film of lovemaking shot from the female perspective, with contemporary shots of her journals, paintings and home life, Breaking the Frame captures the multidimensionality and intimate nature of the artist’s practice. Schneemann is disarmingly funny and open as she generously shares her memories and extraordinary personal archive in this mesmerising film.

Bring Me the Head of the Machine Gun Woman Get ready for a real blast! After accidentally overhearing Argentine gangsters talk bloody assassination, a nightclub DJ and video game addict avoids execution only by offering to kill the object of their hatred himself. But the scantily clad, femme-fatale bounty hunter Machine Gun Woman is not going to become a sitting target that easily, especially when her favourite fashion accessories are shiny weapons. The most ruthless killer to ever wear stilettos, she’s hell-on-heels in an all-guns blazing, sexy, violent slice of neo-Latin exploitation. Flashy and trashy grindhouse fare, the way they used to make ‘em. UK premiere.

Broken

Moviejuice discovers

An auspicious feature debut from award-winning theatre director Rufus Norris, Broken is a lyrical, sensitively handled adaptation of the powerful Daniel Clay novel. Newcomer Eloise Laurence is terrific as Skunk, an eleven-year-old girl whose innocent view of the world is tainted by the dark impulses of the adults around her. When a young man is savagely attacked by a neighbour it has tragic consequences for everyone in a suburban street. In a film of expertly controlled mood and striking performances, Tim Roth is outstanding as Skunk’s beloved father Archie, and Damon Albarn’s Electric Wave Bureau contribute a beautiful, bittersweet score.

Byzantium From Neil Jordan, director of Interview with the Vampire and The Company of Wolves, comes a haunting, visually sublime and unique take on ancient undead mythology. Clara (Gemma Arterton) is a 200-year-old vampire who works in sleazy strip clubs and prostitutes herself to support her vampire daughter, Eleanor (Saoirse Ronan). But this deadly duo are no ordinary vampires; Clara drains the scum of the earth and Eleanor acts as an angel of death preying on the suffering elderly. When the two daughters of darkness open up a bordello in a seedy seaside guesthouse, shocking secrets going back through tortured centuries must be suppressed. UK premiere.

Caesar Must Die Cesare deve morire

Awarded the Golden Bear at Berlin, Caesar Must Die marks a stunning return to form for the Taviani brothers. Set in Rome’s Rebibbia maximum security prison, it follows the preparations for a performance of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar by the inmates. Murderers, mafiosi and drugdealers reveal how they feel connected to a play about the hunger for power and the inevitability of betrayal. Reality and fiction blur in a way that also invites us to imagine how the play relates to a wider view of recent Italian politics. This is a lament for failed idealism and a salute to the way that art can illuminate life. It lingers in the memory long after an initial viewing.

Caroline and Jackie Caroline (Marguerite Moreau) and Jackie (Bitsie Tulloch) are very close. Celebrating Caroline’s birthday, the two sisters look set to enjoy an evening with Jackie’s new partner and a few close friends. However, secrets come to the fore as one troubled sister confronts the other and the entire group is dragged into an arduous night of emotional conflict. Written and directed by Adam Christian Clark, this dark familial drama constantly keeps the audience second-guessing, as the ambiguous motivations of the leads slowly reveal themselves. With twitchy editing and cinema-verité style camerawork, the film perfectly captures the ever-questionable psychosis of the two sisters.

Caroline Sascha Cogez 1 Born in Paris, Caroline Sascha Cogez began her career in films working as assistant director to Lars von Trier on The Idiots, Dancer in the Dark and Dogville. She has since built up an impressive body of shorts in fiction, documentary, commercials and music promos. In the first of two programmes of her work, we screen three bittersweet and wryly comic films in which she explores themes of lost love and quiet rebellion. More information about Caroline’s work can be found in the Glasgow Short Film Festival brochure.

Cartoon College Each year, many would-be comic illustrators enrol in The Center for Cartoon Studies in Vermont with dreams of making a living through their trade. Stripping away any perceptions of glamour or instant fame and fortune for successful graduates, this wry and compelling feature documentary paints a vivid picture of the boot camplike conditions and harsh criticisms levelled at those who don’t make the mark, while making no bones about the drudgery of the job for those who do. Featuring interviews with some of the most famous names in independent comics, including Art Spiegelman and Chris Ware.

China Heavyweight The award-winning documentary China Heavyweight introduces us to three aspiring boxers at a training academy in Southwest China. In the spotlight is enigmatic Coach Qi who searches for raw talent in the secondary schools and fields of Sichuan province. Those chosen leave the poverty of their parents’ farms in the hopes of winning medals and honour for their country. As Coach Qi attempts to resurrect his own career, director Chang entwines his quest with the fate of young recruits who worry that they’ll never make it. A sobering depiction of the daily challenges facing ordinary Chinese people, as the conflict between communist ideals and Western individualism transforms China.

Cinecafe presents Gangster No. 1 In homage to GFF’s James Cagney retrospective, the inaugural night of Cinecafe at the Poetry Club gets off to a glorious start with this modern gangster classic.

Cinema City Walking Tour Cinema historians Gordon Barr and Gary Painter of the website www.scottishcinemas.org.uk will take you on a two-hour guided walk past a selection some of Glasgow city centre’s cinema buildings. They will tell you the story of the full range of Glasgow’s unique and architecturally diverse cinemas: from converted warehouses to the earliest purpose-built halls, and from the peculiarly Scottish back-court theatres to the finest 1930s art deco super-cinemas. Highlighting, as they go, cinemas that were, cinemas that are, and cinemas that might have been.

Citadel Winner of the Midnight Audience Award at SXSW, Citadel offers a fresh take on urban paranoia. The influence of Roman Polanski’s Repulsion hangs over the tale of Tommy (Aneurin Barnard), a young man traumatised by a vicious assault on his pregnant wife by the feral hoodies who inhabit an abandoned tower block. Crippled by agoraphobia, Tommy fears the creatures who roam the area and circle his home. Are they just deprived kids living on the streets or something much more terrifying? Filmed on wintry Glasgow locations, Citadel is a creepy, low-budget chiller featuring a barnstorming performance from James Cosmo as an unconventional priest.

Citizens: International Competition 3 A sense of community pervades our third international selection – communities under threat, in revolt or newly forming in unexpected places. The women of the Cuicuro tribe in Brazil take charge when their menfolk transform into Enraged Pigs, whilst a lonely lift operator glimpses signs of a revolution in The Lift. Elsewhere class contradictions are revealed by a death in police custody and a stolen dog, while Polaris offers a snapshot of the Filipino community fishing off Scotland’s North East coast. Full details of all the films are provided in the Glasgow Short Film Festival brochure.

Cloud Atlas One of the most eagerly anticipated films of the year, Cloud Atlas transforms David Mitchell’s landmark novel into a sweeping, kaleidoscopic epic on the way individual lives and actions can have profound consequences that echo through time. An all-star cast including Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, Ben Whishaw, Jim Broadbent and Doona Bae are used in multiple roles, threaded through connected tales that move from the Pacific Islands in the 1840s to Scotland in the 1930s, San Francisco in the 1970s, a futuristic New Seoul and a post-apocalyptic Hawaii. Co-directors Lana Wachowski, Andy Wachowski and Tom Tykwer have combined their unique talents to create a dazzling feat of cinematic storytelling that is just as captivating as the bestselling novel.

Colors Cores If Jim Jarmusch hailed from Brazil he might have made a film like Colors, a moody, laid-back, black-and-white debut from Francisco Garcia that marks him out as a talent to watch. Brazil may be enjoying an economic boom but nobody seems to have told the trio of Sao Paulo hipsters at the heart of this story. Luca is a tattoo artist sharing an apartment with his elderly grandmother and her equally ancient tortoise. Luiz is a drug dealer and Luara works in a tropical fish store, nurturing dreams of escape. Garcia finds deadpan comedy in their struggles on the margins in an endearing film that is backed by a feisty soundtrack from electronic composer Wilson Sukorski.

Columbia 1: Mind Games The MFA Film Program at Columbia University’s School of the Arts in New York has produced many award-winning filmmakers. In two showcase programmes of the school’s recent output, Glasgow Short Film Festival brings you the next generation of American independent directors. The first programme explores themes of power and cruelty. Two adult brothers torment their mother’s new lover, whilst a playboy refuses to accept an old friend’s changing priorities. Also featuring a rogue therapist and a woman desperately keeping up appearances as her world collapses.

Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope Produced by Stan Lee and Joss Whedon, this affectionate documentary from the director of Super Size Me follows some of the collectors, the competitors and the cosplayers who make the annual pilgrimage to San Diego for the world’s largest comic book convention, Comic-Con. Triumphing as both an overview of the event, as super-fans from Kevin Smith to Guillermo del Toro reveal why they love it so much, and an intimate portrait of some its disciples, this is above all a celebration of what it means to be a geek.

Coming Home: International Competition 8 The textures and tensions of home are captured in our final competition selection. Encounters Short Film Festival-winning Premature holds our cringing gaze in a single shot of embarrassment and culture-clash, whilst in House Party by Adrian Sitaru (Glasgow Short Film Festival 2011 winner for The Cage), a mother uncovers the goings on while she was away. Belgian animation Oh Willy... has won over sixty international awards. Dylan’s Room took the audience award at Cambridge Film Festival, whilst Irish Folk Furniture comes to us fresh from Sundance. Full details of all the films are provided in the Glasgow Short Film Festival brochure.

Compliance Keep reminding yourself that everything that happens in the disturbing Compliance is based on true events. Craig Zobel’s tautly handled thriller is reminiscent of Stanley Milgram’s famous experiments in the way it explores how far anyone might go to comply with a figure of authority. It is a busy Friday at an Ohio fast-food outlet when supervisor Sandra receives a call suggesting that Becky has been accused of stealing from a customer’s purse. Becky denies the charge but Sandra is persuaded to tackle the matter more aggressively. Soon, Becky is being strip searched and the nightmare has just begun in an intelligent, provocative film that really gets under the skin.

Cul-de-sac: Scottish Competition 1 Six of the twenty-four films competing for the Scottish Short Film Award. An uneasy connection is formed in Ian Waugh’s stunning Strayed, while the protagonist of Calum Nielsen and Helen Wright’s Bond finds herself a little too connected for comfort. In Ben Pace’s Walls and Stuart Elliott’s Return to Sender, two men find themselves trapped by unexpected arrivals. A stork is stuck in the past in Tea Party by Vitali Sichinava and a dream becomes a repeating nightmare in Uisdean Murray’s Oh Jackie.

Daleks’ Invasion Earth 2150 AD There is a strong echo of War of the Worlds in the second of the big screen Doctor Who adventures starring Peter Cushing. Based on a television episode, it finds the Doctor and his companions travelling into the future where London is in ruins after the diabolical Daleks have staged an invasion of planet Earth. The Doctor aids the plucky human survivors as they rally to fight back. Bernard Cribbins co-stars as policeman Tom, returning years later as Donna’s grandfather during David Tennant’s tenure as the Doctor. Restored in readiness for a Blu-ray re-release this spring, the film is good family fun for nostalgic adults and Who fans of all ages.

Dark Star with Live Animat Soundtrack Dark Star, John Carpenter’s first feature, is widely regarded as a cult classic and a seminal influence on 21st century sci-fi. Co-written by and starring Alien screenwriter Dan O’Bannon, this low budget space comedy has found its place in the science fiction pantheon as the missing link between 2001: A Space Odyssey and Red Dwarf. Sheffield-based musicians and producers Animat’s new soundtrack to the film uses their own original tracks, an eclectic selection from their DJ archive and remixed themes from the original score. Previous film projects have included Belleville Rendez-vous, The Straight Story and The Last Man on Earth.

The Day of the Crows Le jour des corneilles

Deep in the forest, a boy and his father lead a wild life in complete isolation. The child grows up with the forest spirits as his only friends until he discovers a village populated with humans and learns about the existence of love. From that moment on, he becomes obsessed with finding the place where his father’s love has been hiding. From the makers of award-winning The Rabbi’s Cat (GYFF 2012), this lush adaptation is stylistically something of a cross between the work of Hayao Miyazaki and Sylvain Chomet. This charming film will appeal to both children and adults, and features an allstar voice cast.

The Day that Lasted 21 Years O Dia Que Durou 21 Anos

Uncovering the guilty legacy of America’s interference in Brazilian politics, Camilo Tavares’ painstaking documentary grips with all the authority of a John Le Carré novel. At the height of Cold War paranoia over Cuba and the enthusiasm for socialist politics in South America, John F Kennedy and later Lyndon Johnson worked to engineer the overthrow of Brazil’s democratically elected president Joao Goulart in a coup d’etat. White House tapes and newly released CIA documents reveal the full extent of what happened, including the positioning of the American fleet on nearby manoeuvres. An astonishing insight into events that led to twenty years of brutal military dictatorship.

Dead Calm Pack a life jacket and flare gun and take to the high seas for the knuckle-biting Australian thriller that introduced Nicole Kidman, in her first starring role, to the wider world. As she and her husband (Sam Neill) enjoy a Pacific cruise on their private yacht to try to recover from a family tragedy, their idyll is interrupted when they encounter a sinking vessel and welcome its lone survivor, a sociopath played by Billy Zane, on board. What follows is suspense and chills of the highest order, played out by a classy cast being expertly marshalled by Philip Noyce’s taut direction.

The Dead Man’s Waltz: Story’s End The Dead Man’s Waltz are a pioneering group of musicians based in Glasgow and on the Isle of Skye. Since 2009 they have created a series of bizarre and imaginative shows involving spoken word, live action and film that have been performed across the country. In Story’s End they lead a group of artists including filmmaker Johnny Barrington, author Hal Duncan, animator Mark Weallans and visual artists Cat Ingall and Kate McMorrine on an investigation into how we tell stories about death. Death narrated, death unspoken, death foreseen, death as a gesture, death the scythebearing cameo… In song, spoken word and film, we come face to face with the one plot-twist that none of us can ignore.

The Deflowering of Eva van End De Ontmaagding Van Eva Van End

The van End household gives all appearances of being perfect – but as we soon discover, perfection comes at a price. And that price is paid by the youngest child, ugly duckling Eva, who is repeatedly ignored by her otherwise occupied family. However, everything changes for Eva when she volunteers to host a strikingly handsome German exchange student for two weeks. His unexpected arrival causes her family to reflect upon their accomplishments with disastrous consequences. A hilarious warts-and-all portrayal of middle-class complacency and hypocrisy, The Deflowering of Eva van End is a near-perfect film that balances satire and melodrama with sharp direction and caustic dialogue. Unmissable.

The Devil’s Plantation Based on May Miles Thomas’ BAFTA-winning website, The Devil’s Plantation promises an unforgettable journey into the hidden corners of Glasgow. It tells the true story of amateur archaeologist Harry Bell whose self-published book Glasgow’s Secret Geometry describes his obsessive search for a secret network of aligned sites traversing the city. The original work changed course after the discovery of an abandoned casefile belonging to ex-psychiatric patient Mary Ross whose long walks in the city mirrored those of Bell. Narrated by Kate Dickie and Gary Lewis, the film lovingly captures the spirit of the dérive (unplanned journey or drift) and like any good excursion arrives at a satisfying and surprising conclusion. An eagerly awaited world premiere.

Doctor Who and the Daleks In the first flush of The Time Lord’s enduring success in the Swinging Sixties, Doctor Who graduated to the big screen in two adventures that delighted their obsessive young fans. The films have now been fully restored in preparation for a 2013 re-release and also provide the perfect excuse to celebrate the centenary of the birth of Peter Cushing. Cushing’s Doctor Who is an eccentric inventor, accompanied by two granddaughters and one of the girl’s boyfriends, on an adventure to the planet Skaro. They arrive just in time to play a vital role in the war being waged between the peace-loving Thals and their deadly enemy the Daleks. Exterminate! Exterminate!

Dormant Beauty Bella addormentata

The case of Eluana Englaro became a lightning rod for the debate about euthanasia in Italy. Englaro was injured in a car accident and spent seventeen years in a vegetative state as her father fought a legal battle to end her life. Marco Bellocchio’s latest feature explores the case and its implications through three fictional stories: a senator grapples with his conscience before a crucial parliamentary vote on Englaro’s fate; a devoutly Catholic singer abandons her career to care for her stricken child; and a methadone addict begs to end her life. A powerful, thought-provoking reflection on matters of life and death.

Dredd In the dystopian, hyper-violent future of Mega City One, a tough team of urban police battle everyday to maintain balance. Granted the combined powers of judge, jury and executioner, these ‘Judges’ do what they must to strike fear into the hearts of the criminal underworld. When the villainous Ma-Ma threatens to bring utter chaos, one particularly elite Judge, by the name of Dredd, must battle his way through her 200-story tower block home and restore what order he can. Featuring frenetic set pieces and a pounding score, this gritty sci-fi actioner has something for fans of the comic and newcomers alike.

Safe House director Daniel Espinosa first grabbed attention with this violent, vice-like thriller based on the bestselling novel by criminal defence attorney Jens Lapidus. Praised for its dynamic storytelling and tangy evocation of a multicultural Sweden, it finds its focus in handsome economics student JW, a man who has dipped his toes in the drug trade and discovered that he is now swimming with sharks. Escaped con Jorge is lining up a massive cocaine deal that will smash the Serbian mafia’s control of the local drug trade. Mafia enforcer Mrado is not about to let that happen and somewhere in the middle there is slick, resourceful JW who works for Jorge’s partners in crime.

Set three years after Easy Money, the sequel is no less thrilling as Joel Kinnaman’s dashing mixture of social climber and wily criminal JW has served a portion of his sentence and is about to qualify for day release from prison. He could keep his head down and seek atonement but that’s really not his style. Instead, he sets about freeing former enemy Mrado and joining forces to seek revenge from the man who put them behind bars. Director Babak Najafi offers a tighter, tenser sequel with another impressive performance from rising star Kinnaman who is soon to be seen taking the central role in the Hollywood reboot of Robocop.

Ever to Excel Sir Sean Connery’s welcome return to the screen arose when he realised that St Andrews University helped to shape the world.

With a hauntingly evocative score by the talented Rory Boyle, this is the third film directed by Murray Grigor featuring Hamid Shams’ inspired all-weather photography.

Everybody Has a Plan Todos tenemos un plan

Viggo Mortensen gives a bravura performance as identical twin brothers in this exciting, cleverly plotted first feature from writer/director Ana Piterbarg. Augustin is a married doctor who feels trapped by his comfortable, suffocating life in Buenos Aires. His anxiety intensifies when his wife announces plans to adopt a baby. Then his identical twin Pedro arrives with news of his terminal illness. It is a heaven sent last chance for Augustin to reinvent himself. He assumes his brother’s identity and flees to the Tigre Delta, a sleazy refuge for shady underworld figures. He is soon trapped again, this time by Pedro’s criminal past and the fight for survival begins.

Expanded Cinema: Apparatus & Methodology Canadian experimental filmmaker Alex MacKenzie presents a closer look at the original engine of expanded cinema: the projector. Participants will explore how to work with 16mm projection devices to allow an expansion of their potential and a re-purposing of their function. The various elements of projection – light, lens, focal plane, film gate, speed, shutter, motor, bulb and screen – will all be explored with live examples and an up-close and hands-on approach. This workshop promises to demystify the primary instrument of the motion picture.

Far Out isn’t Far Enough: The Tomi Ungerer Story There is nobody quite like Tomi Ungerer. His remarkable career as an illustrator and author spans decades and continents. The acerbic wit and unique style of his art tested the boundaries of acceptability while pleasing mainstream audiences. Far Out isn’t Far Enough traces Ungerer’s life from his childhood in Nazi-occupied Alsace through to popularity in 1950s New York, with parallel careers as a children’s author and an illustrator of more adult-targeted fare. Featuring fresh interviews with the likes of Where the Wild Things Are author Maurice Sendak and mixing traditional footage with animation, Ungerer’s tale is revealing, engaging and amusing in equal measure.

Fat Kid Rules the World Troy Billings is seventeen, overweight and suicidal. Just as he’s about to jump in front of a bus, he’s saved by high school dropout and wannabe musician Marcus. The two begin an uneasy partnership when Marcus enlists the musically challenged Troy to become the drummer in his new punk rock band. As Troy’s friendship with Marcus grows, his protective father becomes increasingly concerned. Actor Matthew Lillard (Scream, The Descendants) makes his directorial debut with this warm adaptation of the cult novel, featuring a fantastic performance from Jacob Wysocki, star of Terri (GYFF 2012).

The brilliant comic cast includes a fresh-faced Matthew Broderick in the title role, Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey as his cynical sister and Charlie Sheen in a memorable cameo.

A Few Hours of Spring

Quelques heures de printemps The great Vincent Lindon is reunited with his Mademoiselle Chambon director Stéphane Brizé for a sensitively handled, incredibly moving family drama. Just released from prison, weary and hopeless, Lindon’s Alain has little choice but to move in with his elderly mother Yvette (Hélène Vincent). Mother and son are soon driving each other crazy. When Alain starts a relationship he is even more acutely aware of the frustrations of living at home. When it becomes apparent that Yvette is seriously ill and failing, they are forced to establish a different relationship and face the painful realities of her final days.

The Fifth Season La cinquième saison

Earning comparisons with the cinema of Michael Haneke and Andrei Tarkovsky, The Fifth Season is an eerie, compellingly original apocalyptic fantasy. In a secluded village in the Ardennes, the community gathers for a traditional midwinter festival in which a straw effigy is set alight. The pyre refuses to burn and the seasons are held in limbo. Soon, the cows stop giving milk, the bees die and seeds fail to sprout. The catastrophe changes the very nature of life in the village and the personalities of those who dwell there. A chilling scenario unfolds with striking imagery, muddy, wintry medieval landscapes and an eye for the surreal.

The Final Member Siggi Hjartarson has devoted his life to running the world’s only penis museum. The Icelandic Phallological Museum is in the town of Husavik near the Arctic Circle and attracts more than 11,000 visitors each year – from intrepid students of biology to curious holidaymakers. The impressive collection ranges from a hamster specimen to that of a massive sperm whale, the only thing missing is a human specimen. There are two candidates vying to become the first donor; elderly Icelandic explorer and notorious womaniser Pall Arason and eccentric Californian Tom Mitchell who may even be willing to donate while still alive. Often side-splittingly funny but also strangely, deeply moving, this unforgettable documentary treats a delicate subject with complete respect.

First Position Every year, thousands of aspiring dancers enter one of the world’s most prestigious ballet competitions, the Youth America Grand Prix, where lifelong dreams are at stake. This award-winning documentary follows six young dancers as they prepare for a chance to be inducted into the world of professional ballet, struggling through near exhaustion and debilitating injuries, whilst also dealing with teenage angst. Carefully avoiding any predictable backstage dramatics, Kargman’s footage captures the dedication, grace and sacrifices made by these inspirational teens.

Focus on Croatia In collaboration with Tabor Film Festival, Glasgow Short Film Festival has selected some of the finest Croatian short films of recent years. Dalibor Matanić’s Party brilliantly captures the sadness which haunts a generation in the Balkan states, whilst Ana Hušman’s Football improbably dissects the infamous 1986 England-Argentina quarter final. These films have chalked up screenings at Berlin, Rotterdam, Cannes Critics’ Week and Clermont-Ferrand, and have collected awards at the likes of Annecy, Aspen Shortsfest, Brussels, Animafest Zagreb and Sarajevo Film Festival.

The programme will be introduced by Anja Kučko, programme manager of Tabor Film Festival, Croatia’s short film festival.

Set just before the 1964 Olympics, this anime features Umi, a hardworking teen looking after her family while her mother is abroad. One day she comes across a poem in the school newspaper, apparently written about her. A little while later she meets Shun, a daring young man who is part of a school movement to help save the local clubhouse from demolition. Umi joins the movement and she and Shun grow closer, until they are suddenly torn apart by a shocking secret…

Gangs of Wasseypur – Part I Acclaimed as India’s The Godfather, Gangs of Wasseypur was one of the discoveries of the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. Director Anurag Kashyap blends the ferocious energy of South Indian action movies with the sweep, scope and richness of a gangster epic by Sergio Leone or Martin Scorsese. A bitter rivalry between two powerful clans unfolds over seven decades of violence, naked ambition and radical social change. Shahid Khan rises to prominence during the coal mining boom of the 1940s. A clash with mine owner Ramadhir Singh sparks a vicious turf war and leaves Shahid’s merciless son with a lust for revenge.

Gangs of Wasseypur – Part II If Part I of Anurag Kashyap’s stunning saga acknowledged the influence of Leone and Coppola, the pulsating conclusion owes more to Tarantino and Johnnie To. A new generation rises to continue the epic tale of gang warfare with prodigal son Faizal torn between the demands of his family honour and his desire to escape the bloodsoaked legacy of the past. His ruthless manner, pursuit of the deadly Mohsina and entry into the world of politics propels the film breathlessly towards the present. An exhilarating burst of pure adrenalin matching classical Hollywood with Indian verve and inventiveness.

Gary Erskine presents Roller Grrrls Within the last decade the fast-paced, high-intensity contact sport of Roller Derby has gone from strength to strength. Glasgow-based comic Roller Grrrls captures the unique DIY spirit of this sport – with its colourful tales showing the thrills, spills and action of Roller Derby… both on and off the track! Gary Erskine, co-creator of the comic, will be in person to present his work and lead a discussion around it. Following this will be a screening of Derby, Baby: A Story of Love, Addiction and Rink Rash – a unique insight into the world of Roller Derby narrated by Whip It! star Juliette Lewis.

The Gatekeepers Director Dror Moreh has achieved a real coup in The Gatekeepers, persuading six former leaders of the Israeli secret service agency Shin Bet to speak on camera for the first time. They provide a unique perspective on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict over the past fifty years, revealing what they were prepared to do to protect their country and the moral and ethical dilemmas that confronted them. One of the year’s most important and compelling documentaries, it is reminiscent of The Fog of War in the confessional intimacy of its testimony and the valuable insights it provides.

GEEK Night Special with Alex Salmond Think that geeks rarely see daylight and only emerge in public dressed as their favourite superhero? Think again. They are everywhere and have even infiltrated the highest office in this land. There can be no more compelling evidence of their power than tonight’s very special event in the presence of the Right Hon Alex Salmond MSP. So what would the First Minister of fandom settle down with for a relaxing evening? A box set of The Thick of It? Another gallop through Seabiscuit? A wistful watch of Independence Day? We are not about to reveal one of the Festival’s most precious secrets. Find out what wins the First Minister’s vote in the company of Kapow supremo Mark Millar. An unforgettable evening that promises to be out of this world.

George Kuchar: ‘A Laxative of Love for the Constipated Cinefile’ George Kuchar was an unclassifiable filmmaker. The term that is most often assigned to him – underground – suggests a political stance, but the unpretentious, sexy, nerdishly comic exuberance of his work, somewhere between Kenneth Anger and John Waters, has no truck with political posturing. We’re screening four of Kuchar’s early works – three from rare 16mm prints. In these titles, we see how Kuchar’s kitsch style is enthralled by the glamour of classic Hollywood. But to a Bronx nebbish with chronic constipation, glamour doesn’t come so easy...

George Kuchar: Weather Diaries George Kuchar is a legendary figure in the development of artist film and video. During his filmmaking career, Kuchar directed an incredible body of work – 200 films – all characterised by a pioneering lo-fi aesthetic and an inimitable mix of wry monologue, camp humour and wit. Tramway presents Weather Diaries, a series of films spanning over two decades which follow Kuchar ‘storm squatting’ in motels in Oklahoma during tornado season. His films observe the odd social interactions, local eccentricities and intimate personal perspectives that make up the daily lives of the various motel inhabitants, creating a snapshot of life in all its theatrical, humorous and melancholic detail.

Gimme the Loot Two street kids are determined to make a mark on New York City with their graffiti. They plan to tag an iconic NYC landmark and set out to hustle the money they need for their task. Their urban adventure involves detours into casual petty crime but the pair get ripped off at every turn and their quest appears to be mission impossible. A big-hearted Bronx tale, Gimme the Loot captivated audiences at SXSW Film Festival last March, taking the Grand Jury Prize. With standout performances from its young cast, Adam Leon’s debut feature is an energetic and refreshing caper.

Girl Walk // All Day was named the ‘Most Innovative Music Video of 2011’ and was an official selection of the 2012 SXSW Film Festival. To celebrate this extraordinary film, we’re taking Girl Walk // All Day outside to the streets of Glasgow. We’ll have dancers and special projections of the film for you to interact with.

Good Vibrations Relive your teenage kicks with the touching and hilarious story of how record shop owner Terri Hooley, against a backdrop of sectarian violence and political upheaval, bridged the divide between Catholic and Protestant and brought the youth of Belfast together in their shared love of punk. This is a dramatized version of events surrounding the beginnings of the Good Vibrations record label which helped launch the career of The Undertones, Rudi and many other Northern punk bands at the height of the Troubles – offering a glimmer of unity and hope in a time of warfare. Featuring a warm-hearted portrayal of Hooley by Richard Dormer, this is a glowing tribute to a remarkable man and a striking testament to the transportive power of music.

Grandma Lo-Fi with Tangles Amma Lo-Fi 
 At the age of seventy, Sigridur Nielsdottir began to make music in her living room. Within seven years, the Danish/Icelandic visual artist had self-published fifty-nine albums, containing over 600 songs. Employing a myriad of found sounds – from the cooing of a broken-winged, adopted pigeon, to kitchen percussion – Nielsdottir creates catchy, if eccentric, pop tunes. Made over a period of seven years, Grandma Lo-Fi mixes captivating 16mm and Super-8 footage of Nielsdottir, presenting a charming and triumphant insight into the unique world of the adored cult musician. Following the screening will be a concert featuring Tangles and other lo-fi sound musicians who share a love of home-recording. Please check www.glasgowfilm.org/festival for details.

Greetings from Tim Buckley Penn Badgley gives a star-making performance as the young Jeff Buckley in a freewheeling drama inspired by true events. In 1991, Jeff is preparing to perform at a tribute concert for his late father Tim. He struggles to come to terms with his feelings for a father who abandoned him and his mother just before he found success as a singer-songwriter. The entry into his father’s world is made all the more challenging by his novice status as a musician. A romance with Allie (Imogen Poots) blossoms as he faces up to the legacy of the Buckley name and starts to find his own way as a cult star.

The Happy Lands The General Strike of 1926 was a defining moment for a generation fighting to secure decent wages and conditions. It may sound long ago and far away but The Happy Lands lends it a modern resonance as it charts the impact on mining families in Fife. The fight against the ‘austerity cuts’ of an intransigent management inspires the slogan ‘not a penny off the pay, not a minute on the day’. Their defiance is measured in hardship, hunger and suffering that threatens to destroy families and make enemies out of old friends. Developed from true stories and featuring a largely non-professional cast, the film is a heartfelt reminder of Scotland’s past and the legacy of trade union solidarity. Archive footage and the testimony of family members enhances this ambitious drama/documentary.

Heaven’s Gate Has there ever been a more unjustly maligned film than Heaven’s Gate? Notorious as the production that bankrupted a studio and butchered on its original release, Michael Cimino’s majestic western has now been restored to the way the director originally intended. Stunningly photographed by Vilmos Zsigmond, it offers a stirring, unsentimental vision of the forces that shaped America as it charts the increasingly bitter tensions between immigrant settlers and the cattlemen who had claimed large swathes of the country for themselves. The conflict between rich and poor lies at the heart of America’s story and Cimino addresses it in a film that posterity’s judgement will elevate to greatness.

Hellfjord Seven of Norway’s finest directors team up for writer/producer Tommy Wirkola’s (Dead Snow) Nordic Noir fusion of Hot Fuzz and Twin Peaks. Now you can see all seven episodes of this Scandinavian TV sensation: one will screen before each of the five main FrightFest films, and the final two parts screen here as a stand-alone event. Manhunt’s Patrik Syversen and Cold Prey’s Roar Uthaug are among the talented directors focusing on the weird adventures of disgraced Sergeant Salamander, who has been posted to Hellfjord: a small town where family restaurants double as strip clubs, the average age is sixty-seven and the sun never, ever goes down. UK premiere.

Helter Skelter Herutâ sukerutâ

Directed by renowned Japanese art and fashion photographer Mika Ninagawa and based on the award-winning manga of the same name, Helter Skelter provides an insight into the corrupt underbelly of the fashion world. LiLiCo (Erika Sawajiri), a successful model and TV celebrity, seems to have it all. However, behind the glitz and glamour, she’s harbouring a terrible secret; one which threatens to ruin her career. Prepared to go to any lengths in order to preserve her fame and beauty, we watch fantasy descend into nightmare as she desperately tries to retain her perfect image. Vividly shot, with stunning imagery, this is a dark tale of fame, artifice and scandal in the entertainment world.

Her Take: Scottish Women Filmmakers A showcase programme of Scottish women filmmakers from the 1930s to the 1990s, ranging from the strong documentary tradition that Scotland is well known for to the more experimental. Featuring works by Jenny Gilbertson, Annabel Nicolson, Louise Annand and Margaret Tait, and screening from 16mm where possible, the programme shows the extent to which these filmmakers were interested in documenting their immediate environment and recording a sense of place.

Here and There Aquí y allá

Winner of the Critics’ Week Grand Prize at Cannes, Here and There is a subtle, beautifully realised portrait of a close-knit family struggling against poverty and the way it grinds down the human spirit. Pedro returns to the sleepy mountain village of Guerrero in Mexico after a string of menial jobs in America. His long absence has placed an awkward distance between him and his family. In four chapters, the film shows him reconnecting with his pregnant wife and daughters but also suggests that if he wants to provide them with a better future he will once again be condemned to exile. A warm-hearted tale, all the more poignant for its sense of restraint and resignation.

Highlander

Kapow!@GFF

Sean Connery as a foppish Spaniard, Christopher Lambert as a French-accented Scotsman and a pulsating Queen score form the abiding memories of this classic 1980s fantasy adventure. Lambert’s immortal Connor MacLeod battles through the centuries with the help of Connery’s mentor towards a showdown with The Kurgan at The Gathering in modern day New York. Revel once again in the glorious Highland locations, magical songs, endlessly quotable dialogue (‘I am Connor MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod. And I am immortal.’) and oodles of head-lopping action before they remake it. There can be only one!

A Hijacking Kapringen

Moviejuice discovers

The sweaty, claustrophobic reality of being held captive at sea is captured with an unusual level of authenticity in this riveting Danish thriller. In the middle of the Indian Ocean, a Danish freighter is captured by Somali pirates. They demand an enormous ransom for the safe return of the ship and crew. The flinty, ice-cool head of the shipping company assumes responsibility for the negotiations and refuses to give in to their demands. As weeks of stalemate pass, the crew begin to fear for their lives and surrender to despair in a tense, simmering drama with all the nail-biting immediacy of a news bulletin.

The History of Future Folk Sent from the dying planet Hondo on a mission to wipe out the human race and prepare Earth for colonisation, Bill (or General Trius) fails to carry out his orders when he discovers the invention of music and develops a passion for acoustic bluegrass. However, his plans to dedicate the rest of his life to the study of music are foiled when Hondo send bumbling assassin Kevin to knock him off and complete the mission in his place. Managing to convince him otherwise, the two aliens join forces and, forming the bluegrass duo Future Folk, set out to save Hondo, Earth and prevent intergalactic warfare. A charming, quirky tale reminiscent of Flight of the Conchords.

Hooray for Hollywood: International Competition 7 Tinseltown gets a strip-search in our seventh international selection. A-list stars unwittingly create their own experimental film in Hollywood Movie, while Star Wars becomes an unfortunate influence in The First Hope. Jerry & Me charts a turbulent history through Jerry Lewis movies, and melodrama Burning Hearts transforms into something very different. Finally, Virgil Widrich’s Warning Triangle shows up Hollywood’s love affair with the car as something approaching hardcore pornography. What a swellegant, elegant party this is! Full details of all the films are provided in the Glasgow Short Film Festival brochure.

The House of Stories: Lisa Marie Hall Workshop An opportunity for creative filmmakers to explore the maps, music and mirrors of Production Design in an unconventional way.

How to Make Money Selling Drugs The ‘war’ on drugs can never be won and only creates a violent criminal underworld that rips the heart out of communities. That is the main conclusion from Matthew Cooke’s satirical documentary that uses sly humour to make some serious points. Expert celebrity testimony confirms the way in which drugs touch all levels of society in America but punishment is disproportionately heaped upon the poorest and the black community. Airing the arguments for rethinking drug laws, Cooke also provides us with a video game element that offers a step-by-step guide on how to create your own drug empire, from dealing on a street corner to running a major cartel.

How to Survive a Plague In the mid-1980s New York City represented the epicentre of the AIDS epidemic. With the number of cases soaring into the millions, unrest was growing over the inactivity displayed by a seemingly uncaring government. Focusing on Act-Up (the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power), this is the hard-hitting story of the activists, campaigners and demonstrators who fought for funding and research into a cure, and to raise awareness among politicians and the public. Blending archive footage with contemporary interviews to paint a portrait of true heroes, this is a chilling, rousing and deeply emotional film. Documentary filmmaking at its most essential.

I Wish Kiseki

From the acclaimed director of Still Walking and Nobody Knows comes an uplifting portrayal of contemporary Japanese family life. Two brothers, separated when their parents divorce, pin their hopes for reunion on the new bullet train service linking their hometowns. Older brother Koichi believes that their wish will be magically granted when two high-speed trains on the line pass each other and enlists his friends to join him on a journey to witness this miracle. Graceful camerawork and a witty script make for delightful viewing, while effortless performances from real-life brothers will melt the coldest hearts.

In Search of Blind Joe Death: The Saga of John Fahey The unique, guitar finger-picking sound of John Fahey influenced a range of musicians – from Pete Townshend (who calls him the folk equivalent of William Burroughs or Charles Bukowski) to Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore and Chris Funk of The Decemberists. This documentary recounts the dynamic life of the eccentric guitarist, who transcended blues traditions, melding them with both world and classical forms. Featuring talking heads along with archive footage of performances and interviews, this film creates a vivid portrait of a true guitar pioneer.

In the Fog V Tumane

War confronts us with impossible dilemmas. The second fiction feature from My Joy director Sergei Loznitsa is set in 1942 on the western fringes of the USSR. Railway worker Sushenya is quietly led away from his family by two righteous, vindictive partisans. Previously arrested by the Nazis but inexplicably reprieved, Sushenya is now believed to be guilty of collaboration. ‘Should I bring my own shovel?,’ he wryly asks. His fate seems sealed but as the three men venture further into the foggy, fairytale-like woods nothing is clear. The divisions between guilt and innocence are slowly erased in a film of austere beauty and exacting moral rigour.

In the House Dans la maison

GFF favourite François Ozon is on top form with this witty, award-winning account of a disruptive outsider and the way he ruffles the feathers of a model of bourgeois respectability. Fabrice Luchini gives a delicious performance as Germain, a world-weary teacher whose passion for his profession is rekindled by sixteen-year-old pupil Claude (Ernst Umhauer). Claude writes essays that beguile and delight. Does he take his inspiration from life or is he inventively embroidering reality? Germain pushes him to take more risks, never realising that Claude might also start to charm his wife Jeanne (Kristin Scott Thomas). A seductive adaptation of Juan Mayorga’s play The Boy in the Last Row.

In the System: International Competition 6 The protagonists of our sixth international selection find themselves at the mercy of bureaucracy, inhumane policies, or even the fabric of time. They quietly accept their lot and make the best of it. An old man just wants to scatter his wife’s remains in Ash, whilst a pharmacist and her clients tread the same ground each day in East Hastings Pharmacy. In The Parachutist a German airman finally returns home, while Seven Minutes in the Warsaw Ghetto doesn’t flinch from the horrific reality of Nazi-occupied Poland. Full programme details are provided in the Glasgow Short Film Festival brochure.

Indie Game: The Movie Calling all geeks! This illuminating and entertaining doc looks at the underdogs of the video game industry, indie game developers, who sacrifice money, health and sanity to realise their lifelong dreams of sharing their creative visions with the world. A Sundance award winner, the film captures the tension and drama by focusing on these artists’ vulnerability and obsessive quest to express themselves through a 21st-century art form. Interviewees include Super Meat Boy creators Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes, Fez designer Phil Fish and Jonathan Blow, the creative genius behind the critically-adored meta-platformer Braid.

Intertidal An unmissable live experience. Canadian artist Alex MacKenzie takes the audience on a submersive exploration of tidal zones and marine life. This unique performance on two analytic 16mm projectors speaks to the fragility of both the film medium and the marine environment. The scope and materiality of emulsion and environment are explored using photograms, alternative film chemistry, live manipulation, and the very movement of the tides themselves. At once personal, political, visual and ecological, the work gives equal weight to representation and abstraction. Intertidal is a marine ecology for emulsion: teeming and tenuous, fleeting and alive.

The stick figure at the centre of Don Hertzfeldt’s animated trilogy may not look like much. But in charting Bill’s troubled journey through life over the course of three shorts, Hertzfeldt has created an astonishing epic, genuinely one of cinema’s most profound and transformative achievements. The final film of the trilogy, It’s Such a Beautiful Day, took two years to complete and is Don’s longest and most ambitious short film to date: blending traditional animation, experimental optical effects and new digital hybrids. Don’t miss this rare screening of all three films.

James Cosmo in Conversation Glasgow Film Festival is thrilled that James Cosmo is joining us to discuss his career and take questions from the audience. James Cosmo is one of Scotland’s most beloved and versatile actors, bringing presence, authority and humanity to an impressive range of productions from Hollywood blockbusters to homegrown classics. He made his film debut in The Battle of Britain (1969) and his many films since then include Braveheart (1995), Trainspotting (1996), Troy (2004) and Donkeys (2010) which earned him a richly deserved BAFTA Scotland Best Actor Award. His television work ranges from The Persuaders! and Taggart to Sons of Anarchy and the huge global phenomenon Game of Thrones.

Jaws It might not be safe to go back in the water, but from the safety and comfort of the Tall Ship you can revisit the original summer blockbuster that had the crowds queuing round the block in 1975. When pieces of human flesh wash upon the shore of a popular tourist resort, the chief of police, a scientist and a crazed hunter go after the 25-foot great white, only to realise it is the shark that is hunting them. Working on what was only his second theatrical feature, young upstart Steven Spielberg presided over a production beset by problems, from a spiralling budget to a malfunctioning mechanical shark, and crafted a lasting masterclass of pacing, tension and characterisation, propelled by John Williams’ legendary score. The result is as close to perfect as movies get.

John Dies at the End Don Coscarelli’s first film since Bubba Ho-Tep, which became an instant cult classic a decade ago, is a devilishly entertaining time-travel comedy-horror, destined to follow in its footsteps. When new time travelling drug Soy Sauce accidentally opens up a portal in space, college dropouts John and Dave are swept up in a battle to save the world from dimension-traversing beasties. More equipped to participate in a beer drinking contest than achieve feats of super-hero magnitude, the two are propelled into a world of exploding heads, gunge and gore. Join the two wise-cracking would-be heroes in a dizzying journey of alternate universes, shape-shifters and mind-blowing weirdness. With off-the-wall dialogue and special effects, John Dies at the End is an unhinged adventure that’s imaginative, stylish and over the top.

After escaping Lebanon, fourteen-year-old Ali and his family end up in Berlin’s Kreuzberg area. Seeking acceptance from a local gang, Ali agrees to break into the apartment of an elderly Russian Jew and watches while the place is vandalised by his friends. When Ali is caught, his family is anxious that they may be deported. He is forced to help repair the damage, instigating a tense relationship with his neighbour that evolves from mutual distrust to co-dependence. Based on actual events, this is a tragicomic story about understanding cultural and generational differences, told in naturalistic tones.

Kauwboy Jojo lives alone with his uncommunicative father and struggles with the unexplained absence of his mother. When he finds an abandoned baby jackdaw he immediately forms a nurturing bond and decides to nurse it back to health. Knowing full well that his father won’t allow him to keep his new companion in their home, Jojo tries to keep the bird a secret. With clear references to Ken Loach’s classic Kes, Kauwboy is nonetheless unique and won multiple awards at the Berlin Film Festival for its artistic strength and excellent performances. Winner of the first European Film Academy Young Audience Award, voted by 10–13-year-olds in six European cities and the Netherland’s official Oscar entry for 2012.

Kuma ‘My family, my problems!,’ shouts one character in this riveting domestic drama exploring the destructive straitjacket of the ties that bind. Umut Dag’s film should be mentioned in the same breath as A Separation for its subtle understanding of human nature and the power of sacred traditions. Ayse is a radiant, innocent village bride who leaves Turkey for a new life in Vienna with her handsome husband Hasan. It is a fake marriage. Her real purpose is to serve as the second wife, or kuma, of Hasan’s father who fears for the family if his ailing first wife Fatma dies. Ayse’s presence is bitterly resented by Fatma’s children but this is a family riven by secrets and lies. Kuma grows increasingly complex and compelling as truths are confronted and lives are changed.

Apocalyptic rumblings are heard in Tom Chick’s Death in a Nut, Henry Coombes’ I Am the Architect... and Katri Walker’s Rapture, whilst irreversibly changing worlds, personal and collective, figure in All that Glisters (Claire Lamond), Polaris (Chico Pereira) and When the Song Dies (James Barrett). Multi-award-winning animation I Am Tom Moody by Ainslie Henderson completes the programme. Full details are provided in the Glasgow Short Film Festival brochure.

A Late Quartet Yaron Zilberman’s civilised delight provides Christopher Walken with one of his best roles in recent years as Peter, the founding member of a successful string quartet. As the quartet prepare to celebrate their silver anniversary with a recital of Beethoven’s Late String Quartets, Peter is diagnosed with a degenerative illness. It is a moment when everything he has worked for starts to fall apart, including the marriage of second violinist Robert (Philip Seymour Hoffman) and violist Juliette (Catherine Keener). Restoring the delicate harmony of the group is the basis of this wise, beautifully acted drama with a wonderful classical soundtrack.

The Legend of Kasper Hauser La leggenda di Kaspar Hauser

And now for something completely bonkers. This contemporary retelling of the story of Kaspar Hauser, the mysterious 19th century Bavarian ‘wild boy’ who claimed to have grown up in total isolation, plays like a surreal western directed by the love child of Jodorowsky and Fellini. Kaspar, reimagined as an androgynous raver, washes up on a sparsely-populated Mediterranean island complete with Adidas tracksuit and headphones. Vincent Gallo, who plays the double role of superstar sheriff and drug pusher, sees Kaspar as both messiah and enemy and eventually brings about his/ her downfall. Shot in luscious black-and-white and featuring a pulsing score by techno behemoth Vitalic, this trippy and compelling work is bound to become a cult classic.

Lena Lena doesn’t want to be defined by her larger-than-average size but it seems she’s only free of it when she’s dancing or making herself available to boys. All this changes when she meets the handsome and apparently wealthy Daan who doesn’t seem to care about her looks. Lena is happy to escape her miserable life and move in with Daan’s family but is he really everything that he appears to be? Lena’s new found love is put to the test as she attempts to maintain her relationship despite the trials that life provides. The film captures Lena’s emotional conflicts using both tenderness and coarse humour in a vivid depiction of a complex character, featuring a mesmerising debut from Emma Levie as lonely Lena.

Living Apart Together The late Charlie Gormley was one of the adventurous spirits who helped put Scottish filmmaking on the map in the 1980s. Living Apart Together was his first feature as a director and has virtually disappeared from sight in recent years. Now it has been lovingly restored, and re-released, by Park Circus with support from Creative Scotland and Film4 and is back to reclaim its rightful position in our affections. BA Robertson is well cast as a singer/songwriter who returns to Glasgow for a friend’s funeral and struggles to make sense of a broken marriage and a life of regrets. A lovely sense of Glasgow, a fantastic soundtrack and a cast peppered with familiar faces from Jimmy Logan to a young Peter Capaldi.

The Look of Love Fresh from its world premiere at Sundance, The Look of Love invites you to enter the plush velvet world of Paul Raymond, the notorious porn baron and property tycoon who became known as the ‘King of Soho’. Michael Winterbottom’s stylish, energetic biography follows Raymond from the opening of his first ‘gentleman’s club’ in 1958 to his astonishing rise as the owner of many clubs and top shelf magazines. Vast wealth doesn’t necessarily bring happiness as Raymond fights the hypocrisy of British sexual mores and his own tragic failings. Steve Coogan gives one of his best performances in a film that cleverly reflects its times through a changing aesthetic and a killer soundtrack.

Looking for Hortense Cherchez Hortense

Pascal Bonitzer’s elegant comedy of manners is impeccably played by an ensemble cast that includes Kristin Scott Thomas, Jean-Pierre Bacri and a scene-stealing Claude Rich. Damien (Bacri) is a weary academic who specialises in Chinese civilisation. His wife Iva (Scott Thomas) is a theatre director. Their comfortable life has grown stale and dull. Then Iva asks her husband to speak to his influential father Sébastien (Rich) about pulling some strings to help a Serbian woman in danger of being deported. Damien is loathe to ask a favour and as he prevaricates, lives are plunged into crisis in this smart, witty delight.

The Lords of Salem Hard rock Boston DJ Heidi Hawthorne co-hosts a late-night radio show. One day she receives a promo record from a mysterious band called The Lords whose music is strange and sinister. It transpires the droning tune was composed during the Witch Trials to turn all the local Salem women into satanic acolytes. When she plays it on the air, Heidi spirals into drug addiction and starts having nightmare hallucinations about the demon seed. Cult director Rob Zombie returns with his darkest horror – a journey to the unfathomable depths of terror in the tradition of Rosemary’s Baby and The Devils. UK premiere.

Lore Director Cate Shortland’s long-awaited second feature is a powerful, poetic drama that views the aftermath of Hitler’s Germany through the eyes of fourteen-year-old Hannelore, played by impressive newcomer Saskia Rosendahl. As her parents face the consequences of their part in the Nazi era, Lore is left to care for her brothers and sisters. Their incredible journey across a ravaged, defeated land confronts the privileged Lore with all the brutal realities of the country her parents helped to create. A thoughtprovoking reflection on a moment in time told with a lyrical sense of landscape and heartbreaking emotion.

Love is All You Need Den skaldede Frisør

Tired of shrill, soulless Hollywood romantic comedies? Susanne Bier’s delightful Love is All You Need could restore your faith in the entire genre. Recovering from chemotherapy, Trine Dyrholm’s Ida discovers her boorish husband’s infidelity in the worst possible way. She leaves alone for their daughter’s dream wedding at a beautiful Italian villa in Sorrento. When soon to be ex-hubby joins the wedding party with his new conquest, the family’s ugly squabbles leave straitlaced widower Philip (Pierce Brosnan) wondering if his son has made the right choice. A sparkling, sun-kissed romantic charmer that will prove irresistible to anyone who believes that love can conquer all obstacles.

Love, Marilyn Fifty years after her death, Marilyn Monroe continues to beguile and bewilder. Smart, witty, gorgeous, frightened, insecure; she was nothing if not the sum of her many contradictions. Oscar-winning director Liz Garbus offers Marilyn fans something they might have thought impossible – a fresh perspective on the woman and the icon. Drawing on never previously seen personal papers, diaries and letters, Garbus invites an astonishing range of performers to enact Marilyn’s words, each of them bringing something distinctive to their interpretation. Outtakes, home movies, photos and fresh interviews all contribute to this intimate evocation of an unforgettable life.

Love Me or Leave Me

James Cagney:  Top of the World, Ma!

James Cagney received a third Best Actor Oscar nomination for his role as ruthless gangster Martin ‘The Gimp’ Snyder in this unusually candid, hardedged biography of 1920s singer Ruth Etting. Doris Day matches him with one of the best dramatic performances of her career as Etting, a woman moulded for stardom by her Svengali-like lover and unable to escape his obsessive need to dominate and control her life. A lavish recreation of the roaring twenties, great songs (‘Ten Cents a Dance’, ‘Love Me or Leave Me’ etc) and scorching performances make this one of the best late Cagney films and the recipient of six Oscar nominations.

Making a Fan Film For decades, devoted genre fans have been adapting their favourite characters and worlds into films for the small screen. However, in the last few years, the form has evolved considerably. With the help of channels such as YouTube and increased access to equipment and software, fan films have gradually become a credible form of moviemaking. The Judge Dredd fan film, Judge Minty illustrates exactly what can be done with a little inspiration and a lot of dedication. Following a screening of Judge Minty, filmmaker Steven Sterlacchini will lead a discussion exploring the ups and downs of the low-budget fan filmmaking process. One for genre fans and budding filmmakers alike!

Mama Argentinian director Andres Muschietti is one of the great hopes of the horror genre. His feature debut is produced by Guillermo del Toro, stars Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain and is based on a very creepy supernatural short. Two young girls have been lost in the forest for close to five years. They are practically feral when they are placed into the custody of their uncle Lucas and his wife Annabel. Given time, there is every expectation that they will lead a normal life. Oh really? What happened to them in the forest? Someone must have been watching over them. That someone is not about to let them go. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

A Map for Love

Mapa Para Conversar There are echoes of Roman Polanski’s Knife in the Water and the work of Joanna Hogg in Fernández Constanza’s award-winning feature on negotiating the minefield of tensions between lovers and parents. Set over two days in Santiago, it follows Roberta as she sets out to tell her overbearing mother Ana about her relationship with Javiera. The mother is conservative in her values but wants the best for her little girl. Roberta proposes that the three of them should go sailing together. A day at sea in confined quarters with alcohol easily to hand is not the best recipe for plain sailing. As inhibitions are shed and home truths bluntly stated, the three women struggle to find common ground.

Margaret Tait Award: Outwork Named after an essay by Jacques Derrida which questions the necessity of literary prefaces, Outwork is Stephen Sutcliffe’s filmic collage inspired by Erving Goffman’s book Frame Analysis. Goffman, a macro sociologist, explores how conclusions drawn from events and interactions shift dramatically due to changes in their framing contexts. Sutcliffe employs this premise structurally, with a series of images and animations operating associatively as mise-en-abyme. To boot (moreover), the determining influence of titles, prefaces, trailers and introductions – even listing information like this – on the body of work that follows them is a tension that Sutcliffe poetically negotiates. Sutcliffe’s work is the third annual Margaret Tait Award project.

Margaret Tait Residency Film & Margaret Tait, Film Poet A poet, filmmaker and artist of unique and extraordinary vision, Margaret Tait died in 1999, aged eighty. Inspired by her, GFF sent emerging moving image artist, Sarah Forrest, to Margaret’s native Orkney for six weeks on a Creative Futures Residency. Taking as her point of departure the notion of a pursuit, Sarah structured her Residency around an individual’s search for a mythical object. This object, however, was stubbornly elusive; it was not to be found. Here she presents the resulting work. Alongside this exclusive screening we will show Margaret Tait, Film Poet, a documentary about the intensely private, enigmatic filmmaker told through her friends, family and peers.

With Iron Man, Thor and Captain America all set to return to our screens between now and next spring with their individual sequels, relive how they overcame their initial animosities to first band together to take on an intergalactic army led by Thor’s brother Loki. Robert Downey Jr leads a fantastic cast in a film that manages to be hilarious (Mark Ruffalo’s revitalised Hulk completely steals the show), exciting and spectacular at the same time, and which instantly announces itself as one of the greatest comic book movies ever made.

Mekong Hotel Palme d’Or winning Apichatpong Weerasethakul has one of the most distinctive visions in contemporary cinema. His newest work is an inventive mix of fact and fiction set in a hotel overlooking the Mekong River, on Thailand’s border with Laos. Fragments from an earlier unrealised project (Ecstasy Garden) are combined with reminiscences from his regular troupe of actors about their experiences of the region. Exploring themes central to his work, such as romantic relationships, reincarnation (personified here by entraileating ghosts) and the legacy of violence that once dominated Thailand’s northeast, Mekong Hotel is an enigmatic and trance-like rumination that makes a strong case for cinema as art.

Preceded by Tsai Ming-liang’s Walker (26 mins), a stunningly photographed meditation on mourning and the frenetic pace of modern life. Tsai’s muse Lee Kang-sheng stars as a red-robed monk moving at a snail’s pace through the bustling streets of Hong Kong.

Men at Lunch Lon Sa Speir Photography captures a moment in time and preserves it forever. In 1932, the New York Times carried a picture of eleven workers casually enjoying their lunch on a balmy autumn day during the construction of the GE Building. They were 850 feet above the ground and perched along a steel girder suspended in mid-air. Who were the fearless workers? Who took that iconic photo? Director Seán Ó Cualáin searches the archives at the Rockefeller Center and the Iron Mountain facilities in Pennsylvania to try and identify the men and answer the cynical question of whether the photo is even authentic. The result is a compelling detective story and a wonderful salute to the immigrants who built America.

Mercy Gnade

The unbearable burden of striving to do the right thing lies at the heart of this compelling morality tale set amidst the stunning beauty of the north Norwegian industrial town of Hammerfest where engineer Niels has moved with his family. One evening in the bleak midwinter his wife Maria hits something or someone in the pitch black on her drive home. She doesn’t stop and when Niels returns to the scene he can find no trace of what the object might have been. The next day there are reports of a young girl’s death due to a hit and run incident. What happens next tests the resolve and integrity of individuals who prove to be far from perfect.

Museum Hours Winner of the Art Cinema Award at the 2012 Locarno Film Festival, the latest film from acclaimed film-essayist Jem Cohen is at once a poignant character study, a glorious city symphony and an insightful meditation on art. When Johann, an attendant at Vienna’s Kunsthistorisches Museum, meets enigmatic Anne, a Canadian visiting her ill cousin in hospital, the two form a rejuvenating bond. Johann acts as Anne’s guide to Vienna, sharing his knowledge of its art and architecture, seeing the city afresh as he does so. Non-professional actors Mary Margaret O’Hara and Bobby Sommer bring a naturalness and spontaneity to their roles while the striking imagery includes sumptuous close-ups of Bruegel the Elder’s peasant landscapes. Full of charm, intelligence and dry humour.

Mutations: International Competition 1 Change and transformation is the theme of our first international selection. A deaf girl tackles the challenges of a school for the hard of hearing, whilst a shy young man attempts to overcome his stutter. In Edmund was a Donkey the cruelty of workmates leads to a voyage of self-discovery, while the landlady of The Pub sees her regulars for the beasts they really are. Experimental documentary Trans and award-winning animation Fear of Flying complete the programme. Full details of all the films are provided in the Glasgow Short Film Festival brochure.

Neighbouring Sounds O som ao redor

In association with

Earning comparisons with Michael Haneke’s Hidden and the early work of Roman Polanski, the first dramatic feature from former film critic Kleber Mendonça Filho has been described as ‘like watching a neighbourhood soap opera reimagined by J G Ballard or John Carpenter’. An affluent area of Recife seems the picture of bourgeois respectability as it smugly basks in the blazing seaside sunlight. There are hints of insecurity and paranoia among the residents who are persuaded to hire a private security firm that offer 24-hour protection. The arrival of security boss Clodoaldo should put them at ease, instead his presence exposes a web of guilty secrets, old wounds and bitter resentments.

Nevada with Live Performance by Lau Drawing inspiration from aspects of Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller’s fated marriage, Nevada is an experimental study about a failed relationship. An expressionistic mood piece with a non-linear narrative, the film explores powerful themes of loathing, performance, rescue and loss, and was made in response to music from the recently released album by multi-award-winning folk trio Lau. Now well-known across the world as a tour-de-force of virtuosic musicianship, the band will accompany the film live and play a short concert of around 45 minutes following the screening.

Now, Forager

The State of Independents

Nominated for the Breakthrough Director Award at the Gotham Awards, Now, Forager offers much more than a title that brings a smile to a film buff’s face. Lucien (Jason Cortlund) and Regina (Tiffany Esteb) live a simple life, foraging in the woods and supplying the fanciest New York restaurants with the freshest mushrooms. She wants more stability. He wants to stay off the grid and follow the mushroom season south. When Regina takes a permanent job in a restaurant, Lucien retaliates by planning a road trip. Can their marriage survive conflicting ambitions and irreconcilable desires as they start to slowly drift apart? Now, Forager offers sympathetic scenes from a marriage in crisis allied to some of the most beautiful shots of mushrooms ever seen in the movies. Let’s not ask for chanterelles, we have the porcini!

One, Two, Three James Cagney’s last major film role is a corker. His performance is a master class of comic timing, dynamism and gold-plated movie star charisma. Billy Wilder’s riotous Cold War farce is set in a divided Berlin where Cagney is a fast-talking Coca Cola executive juggling work, marriage and extra-curricular activities. Then, his boss asks him to keep an eye on his apple pie American daughter during her visit. The girl falls for a boy, a boy who happens to be a mule-headed, obnoxious Communist. As everything spins out of control it is master manipulator Cagney who wheels and deals to snatch triumph from the jaws of disaster.

Otelo Burning When Otelo takes to the water for the first time, it’s clear that he was born to surf. It is 1989 and South African apartheid has reached its peak. Competitive surfing offers Otelo access to a world previously unavailable to him and is a welcome escape from the political violence that has taken hold in his township. With practice, he soon outshines his peers but when confronted by personal tragedy, he must make a choice between surfing success and justice. This strong and insightful film ably captures the turbulence of life in South Africa at the time of Nelson Mandela’s release from prison and its effect on young people’s lives.

Our Children

À perdre la raison What could possibly lead a mother to murder her own children? The devastating, unbearably moving Our Children uses a real life case from Belgium to confront the nightmare of infanticide. Émilie Dequenne gives a moving performance as Murielle, a carefree young woman who marries Mounir (Tahar Ramin). They start a family but Murielle is soon struggling with the incessant demands of the toddlers, Mounir’s cooling attitude towards her and his complex relationship with the avuncular but quietly manipulative family friend Dr Pinget (Niels Arestrup). As Murielle is pushed to the limit of her abilities, Our Children offers a piercing glimpse into the abyss.

An Oversimplification of Her Beauty Winner of the Gotham Awards ‘Best Film Not Playing at a Theater Near You’ prize, An Oversimplification of Her Beauty is a playful, exhilaratingly inventive reflection on the messy, heartbreaking business of unrequited love. Filmmaker Terence Nance is besotted with Namik Minter who remains lukewarm towards him. He aims to win her and woo her by making a film that deconstructs a one-sided relationship defined by misread signals and casual rejection. He layers his film like a painting, rewinding to revisit key moments and incorporating animated sequences all to impress the woman he loves. A smart, sweet love letter that blends cinematic sleight of hand with heartfelt emotion.

Pablo’s Winter Pablo has smoked twenty Winstons a day since he was twelve. Retired from the mines, today he spends most of his days in a haze of smoke and daytime television. Now he must quit – he has suffered five severe heart attacks and his doctor, wife and family fear for his health. However, Pablo is a stubborn man and change does not come easily to him. With a languid pace that mirrors its lead, this documentary captures the beautiful landscape of Almadén in Spain as the endearing curmudgeon Pablo goes about his daily life. A worthy winner at IDFA and DOK Leipzig.

The Paperboy Pour yourself a mint julep, flick open a fan to bat away the stifling heat and prepare to enjoy a raunchy thriller that is the very essence of guilty pleasure. Lee Daniels’ first film since Precious is a wonderfully lurid gothic thriller set in the sun-drenched swamps of the deep south in 1969. Bloated sleazebag John Cusack is on death row, convicted of killing a notoriously racist sheriff. Miami Times reporter Matthew McConaughey is determined to get at the truth of the matter with a little help from his hunky younger brother Zac Efron and Southern sex-pot Nicole Kidman. Hotter than a pepper sprout but much more fun.

The Passion of Joan of Arc La passion de Jeanne d’Arc

With its dazzling camerawork and striking compositions, Carl Dreyer’s The Passion of Joan of Arc convinced the world that film could be art. Accused of heresy and witchcraft, Joan endures the taunting and deceit of the English-backed church court. It is only through her faith that she can rise above her tormentors. Dreyer’s masterpiece is a visual hymn to the triumph of the soul over life. Accompanied by a haunting live score, featuring soprano, church organ and electronics by composer Irene Buckley, this is an awe-inspiring evening of music and film. This special event will take place in one of Glasgow’s most iconic buildings, the stunning Glasgow Cathedral.

Peter Darrell: Scotland’s Dance Pioneer Marking the twenty-fifth anniversary of his death, Elly Taylor’s documentary Peter Darrell: Scotland’s Dance Pioneer is a wonderful tribute to the life and legacy of the founding father of Scottish Ballet. The brilliant choreographer created innovative dance pieces that reflected the times and brought emotional intensity and a physical dynamism to the classical repertoire. The documentary ends with a fresh staging of his pas de deux for Cheri. We will also present rare screenings of Darrell’s work Mods and Rockers (1964, 25 mins) and Houseparty (1964, 30 mins), an experimental ballet for BBC2 based on Francis Poulenc’s score for Les Biches. A must for dance lovers.

Peter Pan Return to Neverland with the timeless Disney animation as the mischievous Peter Pan whisks Wendy Darling and her brothers off to the magical land for adventures with the Lost Boys. Featuring wonderful songs and some of the most memorable characters ever to grace a family movie, from Captain Hook to Tinker Bell, this adaptation of JM Barrie’s tale is an endless delight, after which youngsters (and possibly a few grown-ups too) will be imagining themselves flying through the riggings of The Tall Ship. All it takes is faith and trust, and a little bit of pixie dust.

The Place Beyond the Pines Reunited after their unforgettable collaboration on Blue Valentine, Ryan Gosling and writer/director Derek Cianfrance have created a supremely stylish crime drama that matures into a rich, complex tale of family, fate, guilt and the unbearable demands of modern masculinity. Gosling is a motorcycle stunt rider working for a travelling circus and happy to drift from town to town, free of commitments or restrictions. When he discovers that he has a baby son, he takes the responsibility seriously. Robbing banks is his means of family support but that soon puts him at odds with an ambitious cop with an idealistic belief in justice. Both men must address the sins of the past in a powerful American epic.

Popcorn II: Electric Boogaloo @ The Flying Duck The first Popcorn event featured fourteen local acts playing covers of movie themes and scores, followed by dancing.

Prime Time Soap A Novela das 8

If Pedro Almodovar was born in Brazil then he might have made a film like Prime Time Soap. Odilon Rocha’s award-winning debut feature is set in the Brazil of 1978, a dark period in the nation’s history. The military dictatorship dominates the country but ordinary citizens find a place to escape in the hot new telenovela Dancin’ Days. Lives are scheduled around the show to ensure that no episode goes unwatched. Prostitute Amanda faces real-life melodrama when a wellconnected client dies in her apartment. She goes on the run with her maid Dora, heading for Rio de Janeiro and the irresistible allure of the real Dancin’ Days disco. A combination of kitsch comedy and coming-of-age tale, Prime Time Soap is a heartening reminder that, even during the most troubling of times, life carries on.

The Public Enemy

James Cagney:  Top of the World, Ma!

James Cagney’s first major film role made him an instant star. Sparks seem to fly from the screen as he invests himself body and soul in his performance as Tom Powers. A fast-talking, two-fisted tough guy, Powers represented a new intensity in the portrayal of screen gangsters. Fuelled by the desperation and hopelessness blighting everyday lives in the streets of Prohibition America, Powers seizes his chance with both hands. He is ruthless with his rivals, brutal towards women and feral in his attitudes. What he does with a grapefruit is criminal. A hugely influential classic with a swaggering display of raw talent from Cagney that still takes the breath away.

Rat Fever Febre do Rato Hailed as a ‘feverish, erotic manifesto’, Rat Fever is the latest work from award-winning agent provocateur Cláudio Assis. Filmed in his native Recife, the ‘Venice of Brazil’, it is a tale of unrequited love filmed in gorgeous black and white. Zizo is an idealistic anarchist, fighting the system with his poetry, street performances and self-published newsletter Febre do Rato. Then he meets the beautiful, conventional Eneida and is instantly smitten. She is happy to be his muse but that is as far as she will go – a huge challenge to a man who believes in living for the moment, drinking his fill and taking his pleasure where he can find it.

Reported Missing Die Vermissten

Reported Missing is the kind of enigmatic, slow-burning psychological thriller that creeps under your skin. Lothar receives a call to tell him that his teenage daughter has gone missing. He hasn’t seen the girl or his ex-wife in years and perhaps it is guilt that compels him to go searching for her. There are no obvious clues as to where she might be or what could have happened to her. As Lothar’s search grows increasingly obsessive, he discovers that other children around her age are also missing. Something is breaking down the family bonds in society and nobody seems prepared to acknowledge it or do anything about it.

The Road: A Story of Life and Death The A5 stretches almost 300 miles from Marble Arch in London to Holyhead in North Wales. It is one of the main arteries of the United Kingdom and along the way you will find countless stories that reveal the extraordinary lives of ordinary people. Marc Isaacs was looking for subjects who were ‘emblematic of the immigrant experience’ and found them in an aspiring singer from Ireland, a trainee Buddhist monk from Burma, an Indian hotel concierge patiently negotiating the visa minefield, an elderly Viennese Jew and a blearyeyed Irish workman lost in a fog of alcohol and regrets. Every step on the road is a journey into someone’s life and the cumulative effect is deeply moving.

The Roaring Twenties Ever wonder where Boardwalk Empire found its swagger and style? Look no further than this punchy, fast-paced James Cagney classic. Marching home from the First World War, Cagney and his pals find America tumbling into lawlessness with the start of Prohibition. A legitimate taxi business soon leads to the illegitimate rise of a bootlegger who careers through the 1920s like a runaway catherine wheel. Sultry dames, two-timing partners and merciless shoot-outs are the hallmarks of a film that has all the energy and immediacy of a newspaper headline. Humphrey Bogart provides memorable support.

Robot & Frank The appliance of science allows retired cat burglar Frank (Frank Langella) to go where no man has gone before in this heartfelt charmer. A growing burden to his exasperated children, cranky, forgetful old maverick Frank is given a robot carer (voiced by Peter Sarsgaard) programmed to ensure that he eats properly, takes some light exercise and behaves himself. Frank’s initial hostility to the idea gradually melts as he enjoys the company and starts to plot one more robbery in which a robot accomplice might prove invaluable. A wry, plaintive comedy that finds the human dimension to a story poised between science fiction fantasy and the realities of tomorrow’s world.

Sammy’s Great Escape 3D Sammy the intrepid explorer is back for more high-seas adventures in this sequel to smash hit A Turtle’s Tale: Sammy’s Adventures. When poachers capture Sammy the leatherback turtle and his best friend Ray, it’s up to the next generation of sea creatures to rescue them from a spectacular aquarium show for tourists in Dubai. With the help of manic lobsters, chatty penguins and an assortment of colourful fish, Sammy and his grandchildren embark on a series of thrills, spills and narrow escapes in their quest for freedom. Fans of the original will love this family-friendly 3D animation.

Sanctuary Norah McGettigan’s first feature is one of the most striking debuts of the past year with an intense soulfulness at its core. When his wife dies, plastic surgeon Jan is confronted by the daughter he has largely avoided for the past ten years. Both of them have been uprooted by grief and are awkward and argumentative with each other. Jan uses the excuse of a conference in Ireland to escape from the situation. There he meets the vivacious Marie who reminds him of his late wife and happier times. Composed with a painterly eye and beautifully acted by Jan Frycz and Anne-Marie Duff, Sanctuary is a delicate, melancholy saga that quietly breaks your heart.

Sawney: Flesh of Man Religious psychopath Sawney stalks Scotland, abducting unholy souls for his communion of sacrifices. With his insane family of inbred killers, Sawney tortures and eats his victims, saving the best morsels for a chained-up figure in their cavernous Highland lair. As the Missing Persons list rises, investigative crime journalist Hamish MacDonald publicly criticises the police’s incompetence, writing a damning article on their failure to solve the case. After his fiancée is kidnapped by the cannibal clan, Hamish investigates the heinous crimes on his own, with disastrous results. For there’s something he doesn’t know about the case that’s crucial to solving it… Scottish premiere.

Scarecrow How can a film with such brilliant performances by Al Pacino and Gene Hackman be so little known or seldom seen? Winner of the Cannes Palme d’Or in 1973, Jerry Schaztberg’s haunting Scarecrow is a film ripe for re-discovery. This 40th anniversary screening confirms the poignancy in this tale of lost souls and broken dreams. Hackman’s cynical, angry Max keeps the world at arm’s length until Pacino’s Lionel offers him his last match. A simple act of kindness inspires a friendship between two drifters that takes them on the road for a visit to Max’s sister and a meeting with the pregnant girl that Lionel abandoned.

The Secret Disco Revolution

?

Decades removed from the hedonism, the sex and drugs, and of course the dancing, this spirited documentary tells the hidden story of disco and how it wasn’t simply a short-lived musical fad but a beacon of change and hope for the gay and black communities and minority groups throughout North America in the 1970s. Unafraid to play it a little tongue-incheek when necessary, this toe-tapping and revealing film features interviews with leading lights of the time, from Gloria Gaynor to The Village People, as well as contemporary cultural experts.

The Sex of the Angels El sexo de los ángeles

Photographer Carla and her boyfriend Bruno have been together forever and are still passionately devoted to each other. Then Bruno meets Rai, a handsome martial arts instructor. The two men find it impossible to resist either the physical attraction or the emotional connection between them. Bruno hasn’t stopped loving Carla and doesn’t want to hurt her but feels he has to go where his heart leads. How the three of them negotiate the minefield of jealousy, hurt, longing and the realities of the ties that bind them together forms the basis of a soulful, award-winning drama that tries to honestly address the tangled workings of the human heart.

Shell The debut feature of Scots director Scott Graham delivers on all the promise of his short films. Set in a striking vision of the wild Scottish Highlands, it features a star-making performance from newcomer Chloe Pirrie as Shell, a teenager living in a remote service station with her father Pete (Joseph Mawle), a dour, damaged shadow of a man. Shell is as alive as the howling wind and as glowing as the pale moonlight. The film is all the more poignant for the way it contrasts her curious, luminous presence with the starkness of the surroundings and her growing sense of a waiting world outside her experience.

Sleep Tight

Eurovisions

Mientras duermes Showered with awards, Sleep Tight is a wonderfully creepy Spanish thriller with a terrific performance from the mighty Luis Tosar as a Barcelona concierge with an unhealthy interest in the building’s residents. By day, Cesar (Tosar) is a cordial, crisply efficient concierge in a gorgeous Art Nouveau apartment. After dark, he seems intent on quietly undermining the confidence and trust of the tenants and pursuing his obsession with the beautiful Clara. His outrageous acts gradually escalate in a film that delivers nailbiting tension with a generous side order of tar black humour. A subtle, unsettling affair from the co-director of the REC films.

Deftly blending the key elements of romantic comedy and musical drama, Songs for Amy is set in stunning County Galway and features the songs of emerging Irish artists Jim McKee and Ultan Conlon. With a Scottish contingent represented by Ford Kiernan and the great James Cosmo, this hilarious and touching romp is so much more than simply Ireland’s version of The Hangover.

A mysterious old woman arrives at a ramshackle wooden house to deliver a baby. The mother has already died but the baby Clarice has survived. It is a normal day for everyone else who lives on the saltwater lake but Clarice will race through her life in the next twenty-four hours.

Staande! Debout!

Crossing the Line

2012, Vilvoorde, an abandoned industrial area in Flanders, Belgium. Felix is an ex-car factory worker. Fifteen years ago his employer suddenly announced the plant’s closure.

Based on true events, this fictionalised account follows Felix’s attempts to overcome forgetting and myth-making to make sense of the traumatic events. Part of ECONOMY, an exhibition presented across CCA (Glasgow) and Stills (Edinburgh) which examines how the economy shapes human life (www. economyexhibition.net).

Starlet

The State of Independents

An unlikely, odd couple alliance lies at the heart of this sweetly funny, poignant tale from Prince of Broadway writer/director Sean Baker. Dree Hemingway (daughter of Mariel) plays Jane, a naive young woman drifting through life in California’s San Fernando Valley with a cute chihuahua called Starlet. Jane buys an old thermos flask at a car boot sale and discovers a stash of money hidden inside. The owner of the flask is suspicious, cantankerous octogenarian widow Sadie (Besedka Johnson in her film debut) and their chance encounter is the start of an unexpected friendship that transcends their ages and very different lives to make a lasting impression.

Steve Niles in Conversation

With work such as 30 Days of Night and Criminal Macabre, Steve Niles brought horror comics back to a larger audience, proving that genre literature need not be all romance, bright colours and capes (his bestial vampires are a far cry away from other recent romanticised creatures of the night). In this special event, Niles will be looking back at his career, not only in comics, but also films, television and video games – all while maintaining his uniquely dark, dangerous and slightly deranged edge.

Stoker Arriving fresh from its world premiere at Sundance, Stoker is an unmissable work from Park Chan-wook, the cult director of Oldboy and Sympathy for Lady Vengeance. There are echoes of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic Shadow of a Doubt in the story of India Stoker (Mia Wasikowska), a young woman devastated by the death of her father in a car accident. Then Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode) arrives to spend quality time with India and her fragile mother Evie (Nicole Kidman). India’s instincts tell her that the mysterious Charlie should not be taken at face value and yet she becomes increasingly infatuated with him in a twisted thriller that is not for the fainthearted.

Strings Make a note of the name Rob Savage – it is one you will want to remember. Writer/ director/photographer Savage turned eighteen on the first day of shooting this hugely impressive first feature that dodges the obvious clichés for a raw, realistic evocation of teenage romance in all its messy awkwardness. In the last weeks of term before school is out forever, German exchange student Grace falls for quiet, introspective Jon while her best friend Scout finds her love/hate relationship with boyfriend Chris growing increasingly volatile. Made on a budget of just £3,000 and marked by its freshness and maturity, this is the work of a talented newcomer.

Sunset Boulevard Billy Wilder’s Oscar-winning classic is as dark and savage a portrait of Hollywood fame as the screen has ever witnessed. Gloria Swanson mesmerises as imperious movie queen Norma Desmond, a silent era icon living on past glories and false dreams of a glorious comeback. William Holden is the cynical, doomed hack prepared to sustain her grand illusions if the price is right. A gothic melodrama with a caustic wit, unforgettable, acid-tipped dialogue and a once in a lifetime cast, Sunset Boulevard is one of the all-time greats and we are proud to host the European premiere of its sumptuous 4K restoration from Paramount Pictures in celebration of the 10th anniversary of Park Circus.

When the full moon rises on the night of his seventh birthday, strange things begin to happen to Alfie: he suddenly grows sharp claws and begins to howl at the moon. He realises he is no longer a regular kid – he’s a werewolf! Only his brother knows, but with Alfie attacking his neighbour’s chickens and biting a bully on the leg, it won’t be long until his secret is revealed.

Taking the Rise

Moviejuice discovers

A terrific heist thriller with a distinctly British sensibility, Taking the Rise marks an impressive first feature from writer/director Rowan Athale. There are echoes of The Usual Suspects and Jackpot as bloodied and battered ex-con Harry Treadaway faces interrogation from skeptical police officer Timothy Spall. Flashbacks reveal Treadaway’s determination to exact revenge on the local crime boss who framed him. He enlists three friends for a robbery on a working men’s club that doesn’t go quite according to plan. Set in a Britain where the skies are as grey as the lives, this is noir with a social conscience, sarcastic banter and great blokey chemistry.

A Tale of Two Syrias The latest work from award-winning documentary filmmaker Yasmin Fedda offers a unique personal perspective on recent events in Syria. Largely filmed before the Syrian uprising in 2011, it captures a sense of life in Damascus and individuals struggling to find a space where they can feel safe, secure and respected. The politics of repression and the heavy hand of Bashar al-Assad’s regime are never far from view but the human interest lies in the stories of Salem, a homeless fashion designer, and Botrous, a football-loving monk who lives in the remote hillside monastery of Mar Musa. An amazing insight into a land of great beauty and brutal oppression.

Thérèse Desqueyroux The final film from the late Claude Miller is an elegant adaptation of the François Mauriac novel set in a painterly vision of the pine-forests of southwest France. Audrey Tautou stars as Thérèse, a young woman who marries wealthy landowner Bernard (Gilles Lellouche). More interested in his dogs and the local hunt than their marriage, she is soon reconciled to a loveless but privileged existence. However, when Bernard’s sister, Anne, falls passionately in love with a dashing young Portuguese man, Thérèse cannot help but compare their relationship with her own. Drawing strength from Anne’s refusal to comply with her parents’ demands to end the relationship, Thérèse begins her own fight to escape her stifling existence.

The Thieves Dodookdeul

One of the biggest box-office hits in the history of South Korea, The Thieves is a slick, globe-trotting heist thriller filled with clever twists and some jaw-dropping stunt work. Comparisons with Ocean’s Eleven seem inevitable but it is a much richer, full-throttle action caper. After a successful heist in South Korea, master criminal Popeye assembles his team for a lucrative job in Macau. Their prize is a $30 million yellow diamond called the Tear of the Sun, kept in a high security casino. The only snag is that they have joined forces with double-crossing Macau Park who cannot be trusted. A fast and furious high-octane thriller.

Tom Kalin Directing Workshop Filmmaker and Columbia University professor Tom Kalin presents a directing workshop focused on the relationship between short films and the subsequent first features made by their directors.

Tower A favourite of GSFF regulars for short films like Princess Margaret Blvd and Green Crayons, Kazik Radwanski doesn’t disappoint with his feature debut: an intense, unflinching study of a most peculiar man. Derek (Derek Bogart) is almost a latterday Travis Bickle. He is thirty-four, lives in his parents’ basement and vaguely pursues a dream of becoming a computer animator. Nerdy, balding and liable to make everyone around him feel uncomfortable, Derek’s awkward presence is literally in your face as Radwanski scrutinises him in tight close-ups. Could a relationship with the affable Nicole (Nicole Fairbairn) be some step towards a greater connection with the world around him or will this be something else that Derek finds too hard to handle? A remarkable character study from a talent to watch.

Traces: International Competition 5 Our fifth international selection sifts through evidence, and constructs narratives from fragments of the past. The great experimental filmmaker John Smith revisits his most famous film thirty-five years on in The Man Phoning Mum, whilst a chance discovery in a Madrid dustbin leads to the reconstruction of a strange family history in A Story for the Modlins. Oberhausen Film Festival winner Snow Tapes offers a subtle engagement with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through a screening of a Hebron family’s home movies.

Treasures from the Far Fur Country In 1919, an ambitious film crew set off on a coast-to-coast journey in order to chronicle Canada’s vast wildness. For over six months they filmed a country populated by Aboriginal and Inuit trappers, Scottish fur traders and the families that lived in the shadow of one of the oldest corporations on Earth: the Hudson’s Bay Company. Forgotten for decades, this footage from the finished film, The Romance of the Far Fur Country, reveals a long-gone era of exploration, exploitation and the harsh climate of Canada’s most remote regions.

Venus Peter The aim of Year of Natural Scotland 2013 is to promote Scotland’s stunning natural beauty and biodiversity. What better way to celebrate this than with a rare screening of Ian Sellar’s impressive debut feature set amidst the haunting seascapes of Orkney? Christopher Rush’s autobiographical book A Twelvemonth and a Day is the inspiration for the story of a young boy growing up in Orkney in the 1940s. Christened with sea water, he is part of a fiercely insular community but learns to appreciate the magic and mystery around him through the eyes of his wise grandfather and the encouragement of his teacher.

Village at the End of the World Niaqornat is a remote village in Northern Greenland where the population is just fiftynine and the dogs outnumber the humans. Over the course of a year, Sarah Gavron and cinematographer David (Downton Abbey) Kaztnelson followed four of the townsfolk: Lars, the only teenager; huntsman Karl who has never acknowledged that Lars is his son; outsider Ilanngauq who moved there to be with the woman he loves; and Annie the community elder who still recalls when seal blubber was the fuel they used in their lights. The portrait of individual lives also reveals the bigger issues of a community’s fragile existence in an uncertain modern world.

Vinyl The punk spirit lives on in Vinyl, a breezy lark of a comedy from writer/director Sara Sugarman. Based on the true story of Mike Peters’ rock and roll hoax in 2004 it stars Phil Daniels as Johnny Jones, a member of the once revered Weapons of Happiness, now living in the miserable afterglow of his fame. A reunion with his former band members leads to a new pop punk single that has the potential to put them back on top.
 However, as they find themselves working within an increasingly superficial music industry, it’s not long before the band discover that nobody wants to sign some decrepit old punks. Johnny decides to fake it, manufacturing a hot young Welsh band as the Trojan horse in his cunning comeback plans.

Vito Vito Russo was an inspirational gay activist who wrote the definitive book on gay representation in the movies. Vito offers a warm tribute to a life that encapsulated the struggles for gay rights and the fight against AIDS in the 1970s and 1980s. Mixing stunning archive footage (New York in the 1960s, Bette Midler at Gay Pride in 1973 etc) with fond memories from Vito’s family and friends, the film builds a powerful portrait of a man who fearlessly stood up for what he knew to be right. His book The Celluloid Closet shone a light on the hidden history of Hollywood and there are choice clips from Caged, Advise & Consent and countless others. A stirring and emotional tribute.

Wadjda One of the most inspirational films of the past year, the award-winning Wadjda is the first Saudi Arabian feature shot entirely within the kingdom and directed by a woman. There is much more than novelty value to this handsomely crafted charmer that reveals life in the kingdom through the story of ten-year-old Wadjda and her determination to own a bike. She wants to race through the streets of Riyadh alongside her best friend Abdullah but girls are not allowed to ride bikes in Saudi Arabia in the same way that women are not allowed to drive cars. Blithely ignoring the restraints placed on her, Wadjda enters a Koran competition where the prize money would allow her to buy the bike of her dreams.

The We and the I It’s the last day of term and a group of Bronx teenagers board the school bus for the final time before summer. As the bus winds its way towards home, the teenagers become increasingly rambunctious, anticipating weeks of glorious freedom. With a cast of non-professional actors, who are essentially playing themselves, and shot almost entirely on the bus, director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) returns to spectacular form with this close-up look at teenagers on the brink of adulthood. With the dynamics between the characters largely unrehearsed, The We and the I provides an authentic snapshot of the anxieties of adolescence.

We Are Northern Lights How do you capture the essence of Scotland in just one film? You invite people all across the country to submit their unique visions in a mass participation project and combine them into an impressionistic feature film that is poignant, thrilling, moving, often very funny and strays far from the stereotypes we often encounter. There is banter and blether, bike rides and booze, the mundane and the magnificent, beautiful landscapes that take your breath away and ideas that fill you with pride and hope for the future. This is a chance to re-discover Scotland through the eyes and thoughts of the people who live here.

Welcome to the Punch Could Eran Creevy be Britain’s answer to Michael Mann? There’s plenty of evidence to support the theory in his second feature Welcome to the Punch, a sleek, steely thriller in the tradition of Heat. A bank heist goes wrong. A young man is found with a gunshot wound. He just happens to be the son of notorious criminal Jacob Sternwood (Mark Strong) and if anything is going to flush him out of hiding and back to Britain it is a critically ill son. Detective Max Lewinsky (James McAvoy) is determined to put Sternwood behind bars and grows increasingly obsessive and reckless in his pursuit of justice. A cracking, guns blazing cat-and-mouse thriller with an amazing cast of top British talent.

Whisky Galore! Raise a dram to the recent centenary of the birth of great Scottish director Alexander Mackendrick with his debut film, one of the most beloved of all the Ealing comedies. Author Compton MacKenzie based his story on the real-life 1941 sinking of the SS Politician, which went down near Eriskay in 1941. With their own supplies running out thanks to wartime rationing, the desperate inhabitants of a fictional Hebridean island liberate a shipwreck of the 50,000 cases of whisky it’s transporting, then try to hide their treasure trove from the authorities. In this delightfully romanticised account, MacKenzie and Mackendrick craft a winning blend of comedy and wonderfully larger than life characters in a joyous treat played to perfection by its indomitable cast.

White Elephant Elefante Blanco

Villa Maria is a notorious Buenos Aires shanty town in the grip of ruthless drug barons and corrupt cops. Dedicated priest Julian (Ricardo Darin) fights an uphill battle to bring food, medicine and education to the community.

He is joined by Father Nicolas (Jeremie Renier), the sole survivor of a military massacre in the Amazon. Nicolas has already begun to question his faith before being confronted by the violence and injustice in Villa Maria. The two priests face an impossible situation in a gripping tale of a fight for the soul of a city.

A ruthless killer with an unhealthy devotion to his mother, Jarrett becomes public enemy number one for cop Hank Fallon (Edmond O’Brien) who risks his life to go undercover and infiltrate Jarrett’s gang. A scorching companion piece to The Public Enemy, White Heat features one of Cagney’s most psychologically detailed and forceful performances. A chilling portrait of a killer in a tense thriller with a blazing finale that has become part of movie history.

Why Can’t Women Make Feature Films? Two filmmakers, a critic and a programmer look at the gender gap, roll up their sleeves and get myth-busting on common misconceptions about female filmmakers and the struggles they face in making the transition from short films to features. Noé Mendelle (Scottish Documentary Institute), Hannah McGill (Sight & Sound, The List) Kate Taylor (Independent Cinema Office) and Tom Kalin (Columbia University) will take a series of familiar complaints, rip them to shreds, and then read the shreds like tea leaves, looking forward to a time when the question ‘How does it feel to be a woman filmmaker?’ is never asked again.

Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines Wonder Woman may have been around since the 1940s, but as this insightful documentary demonstrates, it’s only in recent decades that her true worth has been recognised. Focusing on how she changed from being a strong and independent woman, to a post-war decline into a ‘man’s world’ before swinging back to being a feminist icon again, it features key contributions from writers, fans and of course TV’s Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter. This is an intelligent examination of the influence of superheroines from across the decades on more modern heroes like Buffy and Ripley.

The World’s Most Fashionable Prison In the largest maximum security prison in the Philippines, violence, isolation and despair lurk around every corner.

Told with tasteful restraint, but filmed with a vibrancy that belies its grim setting, this is a beguiling glimpse into another world and a fascinating and complex character.

Along the way Ralph meets tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun from the first-person action game ‘Hero’s Duty’, and feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz from the candy-coated cart racing game, ‘Sugar Rush’, who may just be his first real friend.

Xingu Key events in 20th century Brazilian life are moulded into a sweeping, powerful adventure story in Xingu. In the 1940s, three thrill-seeking brothers sign up for the government’s ‘March West’, a plan to explore distant areas of the country and develop roads and airfields. The areas were officially ‘unoccupied’ despite the presence of indigenous tribes. When a white man’s flu epidemic wipes out countless villagers, the brothers start to develop a sense of responsibility for their actions and become passionate advocates for indigenous rights and a safe haven for the tribes. Beautifully photographed on location, Cao Hamburger’s assured, award-winning tale brings history vividly alive. In association with Boteco do Brasil and the Embassy of Brazil in London

Yankee Doodle Dandy Nominated for eight Oscars, including Best Picture, Yankee Doodle Dandy is a rousing, toe-tapping biography of Broadway legend George M Cohan with a bravura performance from James Cagney that earned him his only Best Actor Oscar. Patriotic fervour triumphs over cold hard facts in a rags-to-riches wartime morale-booster that offers a flag-waving salute to the man behind songs like ‘Over There’ and ‘You’re a Grand Old Flag’. Cagney is in his element and shows some classy moves in dynamic dance routines that prove him the equal of Gene Kelly. Golden Age Hollywood at its irresistible best!
