After many years as part of the Glasgow Film Festival, the Glasgow Youth Film Festival is now entering its second year of independence with a great line-up that includes old favourites and some of the most exciting new youth cinema from around the world. It's entirely put together by teenagers and includes a documentary workshop, a filmmaking workshop and a series of TED Talks among other special events.

The festival runs from 12 to 15 February.
